PHILLIP de Vos, a General Practitioner at Medicross Westering, has once again put his brush to canvas in aid of a charity.

Every year, De Vos, who only paints as a hobby, does a painting which is then raffled in aid of a charity. This year, the chosen charity was Wings and Wishes, an organisation that is dedicated to transporting critically ill children to receive the needed treatment.

The painting, which was on display at Medicross in Westering while it was being raffled, was handed over to its new owner, Leon Geel, on October 12.

The fundraiser managed to raise R6 000 which will be used to pay for the mercy packs given to the Wings and Wishes children who travel to hospitals outside their home town.
