IT was a welcome surprise when we received a phone call from William Aherin of Natal Tanning Extract (NTE) with the intention of bringing a Women’s Month donation to Umvoti Aids Centre (UAC) in order for us to carry on the work we do in our community. Little did we know that this meant a generous cheque of R6 200 plus boxes of clothing donations for those in need. A little birdie informed us that our good friend and lessee Bernd Elges of the Brewpot had a hand in this wonderful gesture.We are so grateful to NTE for bringing out the entire management team to the centre and the interest shown in our programmes and future plans. Umvoti Aids Centre is humbled by the kindness and generosity of the entire executive, management and staff of NTE. — Supplied.
