THE Ugu Cluster Women’s Network Champion, Lieutenant-Colonel Theresa Pillay, also the Msinsini SAPS Station Commander, raised funds for Khanya Hospice at various events hosted under the banner of the network. The most recent undertakings were a walkathon for cancer, a cookout competition at The Mercury Hibberdene Children’s Holiday Home and a Women’s Month celebration in August. While such events afford the Women’s Network members the opportunity to help those less fortunate in their community, they also educate and empower women and highlight the role they play in the South African Police Service as well as in society. Funds raised at these events totalled R2 000.On Wednesday, 16 November, Pillay visited the Khanya Hospice charity shop in Scottburgh where she handed over the R2 000. The staff and volunteers at the charity shop were so appreciative of the gesture they thanked Pillay and members of the Ugu Cluster Women’s Network in a thank you card with a message that read: “The donation will go a long way in making our patients more comfortable. The generosity will be felt by the families of the ill for a very long time.”The network conveys its thanks to the staff and volunteers of the Scottburgh Khanya Hospice charity shop for the card and for their time and effort towards raising funds for their patients. The community is encouraged to support this worthy cause. For the public, who are unaware of what Hospice does, it offers free palliative nursing care to patients with life-threatening diseases like cancer, HIV and TB in the Upper South Coast area. Holistic care and support is provided to patients and their families taking into account their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.- Supplied.
