Sisters host event to assist with matriculants’ fees

2015-06-10 06:00

TWO sisters from Westville Secondary School are hosting a fundraiser to assist matriculants who are struggling financially.

The event, Mr and Miss Northern Areas, will be held on June 28 at 6pm at the Clubhouse in Salsoneville.

Amber Fredericks, a Grade 11 learner, is assisting her sister Teneal, who is the deputy headgirl at Westville, with the project.

“Teneal came up with the initiative because she saw how many of her friends were struggling. Some go to sleep hungry; some don’t have proper school clothes and yet they are so humble and kind,” she said.

Amber said since they don’t have money of their own to donate, they decided to hold the event to raise funds.

She urged the community to attend the event, reiterating that proceeds would go towards paying the school fees of 30 matriculants.
