The Wynberg Rotary Club’s latest annual charity fundraising event, Last Night of the Proms, raised a record profit of R200 000 to donate.

The musical extravaganza took place on two evenings at City Hall in the city centre. Richard Cock conducted the proms orchestra and mass choirs to well-known classics.

This year’s beneficiaries are Childline in Wynberg, Learn to Earn and the Early Learning Resource Unit. The Rotary Club committee recently met at Palm House in Wynberg to hand over the cheques to the charities.

Childline is a designated child protection organisation specialising in prevention and early intervention.

Learn to Earn’s Ground Up initiative partners with unemployed people and trains them to be entry-level baristas, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills.V Visit www.wynbergrotary.org.za or visit WynbergRotary on Facebook.
