Organised Chaos, a trio of local singers/comedians are not only amusing and talented, but also dedicated when it come to assist where there is a dire need in the community.

Be on the watch out for them tomorrow! Shauen van der Berg, Gerard Klerk and Lindsay Klerk, will be at popular shopping centres in Uitenhage. This is to promote their show of tomorrow evening, in aid of the financially stricken Drostdy Workshop for Mentally Disabled Persons.

“The name Organised Chaos derives from the fact that we love to surprise our audiences. We can make them laugh and then at any moment, unexpectedly bring a tear to their eyes,” said Gerard Klerk.

Gerard together with his brother Lindsay, are well-known Senior Traffic Officers at the Uitenhage Traffic Department, whilst Shauen is the Bakery Manager at Pick ’n Pay at the Baywest Mall.

“God blessed us and it now is time for us to also bless others in our community. We care for our community and enjoy being of assistance wherever needed,” said Gerard.

Tickets are R10 per person and the show starts at 19:00 in the church hall of DR Church De Mist, Uys Street, Uitenhage. Doors open at 18:00 and the public are invited to come and enjoy light meals prior to the show. A soft collection will be held during Organised Chaos’ show.

Drostdy Workshop takes care of about 85 mentally disabled persons, keeping them busy during week days doing woodwork, handwork and baking.

According to Yvonne Barkhuizen, Manager of the Workshop, they do receive funding from the government, but it is inadequate to financially keep all the wheels on the roll. Therefore they hugely depend on fund-raising efforts and the support of the public and social clubs.

Drostdy Workshop’s largest fund-raising, the annual Christmas Biscuit sale starts soon. The public are invited to enjoy the Organised Chaos concert tomorrow evening at the DR Church De Mist church hall
