BUSINESS men and women attended the Unashamedly Ethical business and fundraising breakfast, held at the Elangeni Hotel and organised by Compass Cares’, the corporate social investment arm of Compass Medical Waste Services recently.

The aim of the breakfast was to raise awareness and funds for Unashamedly Ethical, Christian Sports and Business Ministry (CSBM) and iThemba Lethu, as well as to encourage South Africans to take a stand against corruption.

A total of R52 500 was raised on the day, which Compass Medical Waste Services rounded up to R60 000 meaning that each of the beneficiaries received a R20 000 donation. An additional R16 000 was raised for iThemba Lethu through the silent auction of a photograph by Matthew Willman, Mandela’s official photographer , and signed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The photograph, entitled Ubunye, meaning “unity” in Zulu, went to West African Group, the successful bidder.

Craig McIntosh, son of rugby legend Ian McIntosh and committee member for CSBM, was the MC for the morning and after welcoming the guests, introduced the chairman of Unashamedly Ethical (UE), Dr Marius Fourie, who explained what the goals of the global organisation are.

Compass Medical Waste Services would like to thank the gift bag and prize sponsors, the Elangeni Hotel, Selbys Productions, Summerhill Guest House and Pinetown Printers for their contribution to the event.
