MANDELA Day is on Monday 18 July and South Africans are encouraged to donate at least 67 minutes of their time on help others.

This is to commemorate the 67 years of Mandela’s life he spent fighting for equality of all South Africans, regardless of race, religion or gender.

Many businesses and citizens on the South Coast are heading the call, and instead of sitting back and complaining, are spending their time and resources to better their communities where they can.

On page 3, Margate business people are doing what they can to keep the town neat by maintaining the public gardens near their businesses.

In the Vox pop on page 18, readers are asked if they think Mandela Day has lost its true meaning.
