THE Guild of St Mary’s Old Girls host an annual fund-raising evening with 90% of the proceeds from the event going to the St Mary’s Foundation Trust.
The trust was created to advance the interests of St Mary’s to be an everlasting school. Its goal is to create a capital fund with the interest earned being used to transform lives through the provision of financial support. The foundation would like to grow this programme so it can assist more girls in the years to come.

The remaining 10% of the funds raised are donated to a charity selected by the Old Girls committee. This year
R10 000 was donated to the Inanda Soup Kitchen (NPO 121-981).
Based next to a church near Inanda Dam, the soup kitchen runs every Wednesday, providing between 150 and 180 children with a much-needed hot meal after school. The donation will enable the non-profit organisation to buy fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and grains to continue providing nourishment to these children.

The Guild of St Mary’s Old Girls thanks Whispering Waters Resort for their contribution and Setzkorn Health & Wealth Consulting, who have been a sponsor of the fund-raising event since its inception six years ago.

“Without the generosity of our sponsors and the hard work of the Old Girls’ committee we would not have been able to raise hundreds of thousands for the foundation trust while simultaneously supporting deserving charities such as the Inanda Soup Kitchen, the KZN Blind & Deaf Society, Choc, the Jes Foord Foundation and The Sunflower Fund,’’ said Derry Jurgensen, St Mary’s Old Girls chairlady. - Supplied.
