THE 31 Club is a registered non-profit fund-raising organisation, 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 voluntary members.

The aim of 31 Club is to raise funds for charities in KZN. The club is a successful organisation, with approximately 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 charity - rather the club establishes what each charity requires and then purchases or sources the items, delivers them and regularly checks on the charities.

To raise funds organisations hold functions throughout the year. There are over 200 “sleeping members” who assist with various functions, offering their time and expertise in the organisation and implementation of fund-raising events.

The club’s next fund-raiser will be a networking breakfast on 11 February with the theme “Dare to love yourself”. Guest speaker is Brett Shuttleworth.

Zogra Cox of 31 Club says the presentation will be centered on Shuttleworth’s extensive array of enriching life experiences.

“We will be enlightened on Brett’s days of glamour as a supermodel, gracing the ramp for all the top international brands, to being challenged beyond limitations on the rugby pitch, negotiating in executive board rooms, breaking numerous bones and overcoming major physical operations, walking the red carpet as a Hollywood actor and international celebrity, living homeless on the streets of Manhattan … swimming the Robben Island Crossing in honour of Nelson Mandela, to being locked up in jail a few times … and ultimately what it takes to live a soul- smiling life,” she said.

Dare to Love Yourself will be held on 11 February at Elangeni Hotel starting at 8am. To book, contact Carol Diakoyannis on 082 221 3355.
