VARSITY College Port Elizabeth’s VC Cares students will be hosting a Heritage Day High Tea Fundraiser at the Radisson Blu Hotel on Saturday, September 24, at 2pm. The theme for the afternoon will be “a hint of South African flair” and guests are encouraged to dress up.

All proceeds raised from this event will go towards the Nal’ibali reading-for-enjoyment campaign. Nal’ibali is isiXhosa for “here’s the story.”

This national reading-for-enjoyment campaign sparks children’s potential through storytelling and reading.

“Our goal is to train up some of our students as FUNDA leaders, Nal’ibali’s reading champions, who host weekly reading circles with children in their communities,” says Jaci Howell, Student Relations Manager Varsity College Port Elizabeth.

Adding to the theme and atmosphere, guests will get to sit back and enjoy great entertainment by The Woodridge Steel Band and professional dancer Aarti Narotam.

Tickets are R150 each, and are available from the Varsity College campus in Ring Road, Greenacres. Each guest will receive a goodie-bag and stand a chance to win lucky draw prizes.

For more information, contact Jaci Howell on 041 363 4223 or


Two PE Express readers can each win two double tickets to the event. To win, find this photo on our Facebook page (PE Express Newspaper) and comment with your e-mail address.
