NELSON Mandela Bay Executive Mayor Athol Trollip officially acknowledged the recipients of the 12th Annual Mayoral Charity Golf Day at a handover launch at the Teletubbies Day Care Centre in Despatch on July 7.

The Mark Headbush Foundation will host the Mayoral Charity Golf Day on September 29 to raise funds for the education of underprivileged communities.

Last year the event raised R256 000 that was donated to the Amanzi Farm School, Colchester Primary School, Elundini Primary School, Mother Cummings Daycare, Teletubbies, Vigilante Daycare and Metro Organisation for the Disabled.

“The primary aim is to donate these funds towards sustainable infrastructure and facilities that will improve the quality of education,” said Headbush Foundation’s Mark Headbush.

Community Chest is in charge of administrating and distributing the funds on behalf of the Mark Headbush Foundation.

“Our gratitude is extended to all the sponsors and donors that continue to support this worthy cause,” said Community Chest CEO Jimmy Gotyana.

The Mayoral Charity Golf Day has become a prominent fixture on the business calendar of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro and is attended by both local and national business executives. The corporate sector has demonstrated its commitment over the years to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

Trollip and the municipality strive to work with all the sectors of the community to improve lives of Nelson Mandela Bay Community.

They consider education a fundamental human right that no one should be deprived of as it equips the future generation to make a positive impact towards building the nation.

The 12th annual Mayoral Charity Golf Day will be held on September 29 at Port Elizabeth Golf Club.
