Public relations students to host market for hospice

2016-09-07 06:00

A GROUP of NMMU Public Relations students are raising funds for Northwood Children’s Hospice as part of a final year project.

The students had to identify a worthy non-governmental organization (NGO) and then work with them in a public relations capacity.

As part of their fundraising efforts for the Hospice, the NMMU students will be hosting a Rainbow Market at Holmeleigh Farm on September 24 from 10am to 3pm.

Vendors will be selling food and other interesting items.

Entertainment will be provided for the young and the young at heart.

The image of a Rainbow is used as a symbol of hope and new beginnings. It also features in the logo of the hospice which is an NGO that provides care for children with life-limiting diseases.

They also assist the parents and try to help them understand how best to handle any special need their children might have.

They have set out to build a brand-new third wing extension, which will be offering an array of top quality treatment options and therapy rooms.

The hefty price tag that comes with construction plans of this magnitude is a great challenge for a NGO to complete on its own. The team are also accepting donations in any form.
