Funds pour in at Salem high tea

Go! & Express - - News -

SALEM Baby Care Cen­tre's High Tea Fundraiser was a huge suc­cess thanks to each host­ess who as­sisted and bought ta­bles this year.

This was a much-needed fundraiser as the funds are des­per­ately needed for run­ning costs to keep Salem’s doors open.

“It was very dif­fi­cult not be­ing able to pay staff in full and this fundraiser en­ables Salem to con­tinue our ser­vices for two more months and we will con­tinue fundrais­ing. We thank our East Lon­don com­mu­nity for em­brac­ing Salem and giv­ing us the as­sis­tance in time of need,” Salem di­rec­tor, Lereen Naidoo said.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion have started with a pledge and have kick-started it with 26 pledges. “We will con­tinue with Curry drives and Cup­cake drives.We will also keep you all up to date re­gard­ing our an­nual fundrais­ers. Our next fundraiser will be a gala din­ner on 9 Septem­ber at The Venue at Hem­ing­ways,” she said.

Salem was one of the fi­nal­ists at this year's For Good In­spi­ra­tion Awards and the R40000 re­ceived there “will keep us go­ing for a month and we so ap­pre­ci­ate this as the tim­ing was an an­swer to prayer”.
