YOUTH Day was celebrated in style thanks to iTEN TV and Durban social group “We are Durban”. A number of children were treated to different activities and fun at Durban’s Pirates Beach yesterday (16 June).

One of the city’s biggest ever beach parties saw approximately 250 under privileged children from Effingham, Quarry Heights, Kabazela, KwaMashu, Duffs Road, Boxwood, Johanna Road, Siyathuthuka, Sea Cow Lake, Briardene, Jamaica, Gum Tree and Smithfield for plenty of fun in the sun.

“Although Youth Day commemorates one of the saddest days in South Africa’s history, it also helps us to remember that we now have a special opportunity to bring joy to courageous little people whose lives can be extremely difficult,” said Masood Boomgaard from iTEN TV.

“As always, this event would not have been possible if it weren’t for the generous time and patience of our volunteers. That’s why we would like to extend a very special thank you to the “We are Durban” social group. The greatest reward after a very energetic day on the beach will be the sound of laughter and the smiles on little faces,” he added
