A lot of fun, chattering, and good-natured competition was had while raising valuable funds for charity, during the annual Rotary Club of Uitenhage South’s golf-day.

All monies raised will be used for the upliftment of the Uitenhage community.

This year the club has decided to support the Uitenhage Recycling Mula Project where children collect, sort and deliver recyclable materials to a central point, where it is exchanged for credits to ‘buy’ food, toiletries, cooking utensils and similar goods. There are more than 700 children registered from the poorest areas.

“This is an excellent initiative and investment in our youth. It serves to develop a good working ethic and an appreciation for our environment, all the while helping struggling families,” said Manoj Karsan, President of the Rotary Club of Uitenhage South.

The success of the golf-day is dependent on the generous support received from individuals and local companies. There were splendid prizes to be won with the main prize being a set of 4 automatic pool cleaners for each of the 4-ball winners, kindly donated by the main sponsor of the event, Fluidra Waterlinx.

Rotarian and coordinator of the event, Pierre van der Westhuizen said, “Owing to the generous donations received, all the players on the day were able to win a gift, while in excess of R30 000 was raised, with the final amount to be determined once all the monies were in.”

  • He thanked all the sponsors and those who made this possible.
