Rotary connects with needy local NPOs
FOLLOWING the successful completion of the Rotary Connection Ride to Cape Town this year, the Rotary Club of Empangeni has been able to begin allocating the money raised to various local charity organisations.
Most recently, the Rotarians visited Hospice House in Empangeni to fully renovate its storage container and handed over 50 blankets and 150 parcels of cereals to the organisation.
The SPCA was the next stop, and it was a happy day for all when a cheque of R15 000 - plus three indigenous trees for shade - were dropped off there by the Rotarian group.
Next it was off to the National Sea Rescue Institute in Richards Bay for a handover of a
R10 000 donation.
The Rotary Club of Empangeni meets each Tuesday at the Empangeni Country Club at 12.45pm.
For further information, email denisembrook@ gmail.com FOOTBALL fans following the ZO Soccer Shoot-out competition should note that today’s edition carries a bonus of two player profile cards.
All you need to do to qualify for the competition is to collect eight soccer player profile cards printed in the ZO every week until Monday, 9 July.
Two player profile cards have already been featured in last Monday’s edition. These cards must be cut out and pasted on the back page of the Football Face-off 2018 feature. When all eight of the player cards have been collected and pasted on the feature, WhatsApp us a photo of the entire collection with your full name to 072 0694169 before Tuesday, 10 July.
Five lucky readers will then be drawn to go through to the ZO Penalty Shoot-out on Friday, 13 July, with a chance to strike and win fantastic prizes up for grabs.
The five finalists will be required to bring along the original Football Face-off feature with the pasted player profile cards.
