Spring is slowly but surely gaining momentum and people are packing away their winter clothes. Instead of piling and stacking them in old bags, with some not going to be used next season, why not donate them to the Butterfly Box?

The first Butterfly Box shop will be opening in Cape Town in October. This pop-up shop will be stocked with designer and top quality male and female clothing and accessories. It may become a favoured shopping destination for unique and designer items at budget prices.

The shop will be at the Threads Project, 349 Albert Road in Woodstock.

All the proceeds from the items sold will go to the Hospice and the Lonely Road Foundation.

The initiative is one of many campaigns that the Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa is running. The Hospice is a hospice umbrella association founded in 1987. It was created in response to a need expressed by hospices to share best practices and to support the development of a hospice movement in South Africa that provides effective, supportive care to communities in need.

The vision of the association is to provide “quality palliative care for all”. Palliative care is the holistic total care of people and the support of their loved ones by a team of doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, spiritual counsellors and volunteers.

Sports personality Lucas Radebe is the Hospice ambassador.

Butterfly tattoos are available to buy in all Primi stores across the country and from hospices for R20. People are encouraged to wear their tattoos in support of those giving and receiving palliative care or in memory of a loved one.

With World Hospice Palliative Care Day taking place globally on Saturday 10 October, the world comes together and speaks out in support of those giving and receiving palliative care. The theme this year is “Hidden lives, hidden patients – Compassion and care for all”.

Another fundraiser is a talent show at the Baxter Theatre on Thursday 1 October at 19:00. Entrants are pupils aged 13 to 18 years. It will be presented by radio DJ Guy McDonald, who will be joined by celebrity judges actress Ayanda Tini and senior soloist at Cape Town Ballet Xola Puyte.

Tickets are available from Computicket.
