31 Club is a non-profit fund raising organisation which was formed in 1962 by a group of women under the chairmanship of Norma Rattray. As the group consisted of 31 volunteers, the club was named accordingly, and membership remains at a maximum of 31 members, who work on a voluntary basis.

The main aim of the 31 Club is to raise funds for charities in KwaZulu-Natal.

The 31 Club is a very successful organisation, with 98% of all funds raised being distributed to selected and monitored charities, which the club has done for over 53 years.

The most important aspect of the charity organisation is that no cash is handed to any charities, rather they establish what each charity requires and then purchase and/or source the items, deliver them and check on the charities on an ongoing basis.

In order to raise funds the club holds functions during the course of the year. All catering and décor for all fund raising functions is done by the members of the club, with different themes each time and with great attention given to detail and presentation.

There are over 200 “sleeping members” who assist with various functions, offering their time and expertise in the organisation and implementation of their fundraising events.

On Thursday 1 September the club hosted a Spring High Tea at St Agnes Church in Kloof, were over 200 women attended and part took in the fun activities.
