Charity golf day a huge success
The Port Alfred Soup Kitchen hosted a successful fundraising golf day sponsored by Build It Kowie and Spar on Saturday, October 15.
It was a huge success, raising a total of R50,000 in aid of the Soup Kitchen and Loaves & Fishes. In addition, six items were auctioned at the prizegiving, amounting to R30,600. The items on auction included a two-night stay at Mansfield Game Reserve, a Zodiac pool cleaner, a wheelbarrow full of SPAR goodies and a Jojo tank with a pump.
Giving a word of appreciation from the beneficiary organisation, Debra Harris thanked the sponsors and their staff for their participation.
“This year we’ve teamed up with Loaves & Fishes so part of this also goes to their cause. We are making sure that everybody in Port Alfred is covered when it comes to food now, so that is absolutely incredible,” she said.
After revealing the amount raised to a huge round of applause, she said, “We are so grateful. Thank you for believing in us, trusting us and thank you for the good money that you’ve given to us. We really appreciate it.”
