PORT Shepstone NPO Touched by An Angel closed off the year by sweating it out through karate in Mkholombe on Sunday.

A karate demonstration was held by Sensei Winni, who trains underprivileged children from Port Shepstone and surrounds.

Organisation founder Cookie Rampersad said the session was not only fun, it was an important lesson for members.

“Karate is a amazing sport that not only exercises the body, but also the mind. It teaches discipline as well as self-discipline.

“As a women and children orientated organisation it is an important tool with which we communicate our message,” said Rampersad.

The women and children were then given lunch, ice cream and Christmas presents donated by the NPO members.

“Nothing beats the feeling of giving and caring for someone else - the smiles on the children’s faces were priceless.

“There are so many others less fortunate than us and every little bit we do makes a huge difference,” said Rampersad, thanking all who worked with them during the year.
