The Laddsworth Night Fun Run-Walk has grown over the past few years from 300 entrants in 2012 to 755 entrants in 2015. This growth can be attributed to the staff and parents of Laddsworth who work together to organise a safe, fun-filled event for the family. The six-kilometre route starts at Laddsworth, then weaves its way through the streets of Hilton and the St Anne’s College wetlands, and finishes back at Laddsworth. There is a shorter route for younger children and grandparents of approximately four kilometres. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, 15 June at 6pm at Laddsworth Primary School, 1 Winstead Road, Hilton. For more information contact Shamaine Rajah at 033 343 3256, extension 4. Entry forms are available on the website www.laddsworth.co.za Participants must remember to get dressed in luminous gear as the theme is glow in the dark. Headlamps are encouraged.

Msunduzi Hospice Association presents internationally recognised documentary photographer, Matthew Willman, who grew up during the last era of apartheid in South Africa.
