THE Party of Hope fundraiser for cancer was hosted at the Forest Hill Primary School on Thursday, much to the excitement of the pupils at school.

Fundraiser for cancer and volunteer for the Voices of Pietermaritzburg group on Facebook that raises funds for worthy causes, Deidre De Wee, said it was a fun and successful initiative to get involved in with the pupils.

Cupcakes, sponsored by various businesses and communities among Pietermaritzburg, were sold on the day, with De Wee and her volunteers managed to raise a significant amount that will be donated towards treatment for children with cancer.

“It was so exciting because children love sugar and more so cupcakes. The excitement on their faces was priceless as they got to see the variety they could choose from,” said De Wee of the opportunity to raise funds for cancer and make children happy.

De Wee said her goal was to host at least one Party of Hope per a month because she believed that every bit helps towards funding for cancer and is always needed.

“If anyone is interested in assisting or helping please contact me on 065 253 4746,” she said.
