MORE than 100 women from the mid-South Coast converged on the Park Rynie beach campsite on Women’s Day to listen to talks by fellow women and participate in a Women’s Day Zumba beach bash. Mildred Ngcobo of the GJ. Crookes Hospital in Scottburgh regularly deals with victims of crime at the hospital trauma centre and stressed the importance of reporting all instances of rape and sexual offences and introduced a young rape survivor whose story touched the hearts of all. Johanna Tait, a fitness instructor, spoke on the benefits of exercising and keeping fit and other matters relevant to Women’s Day. Shereen Paul and her team from Ultimate Dance Fitness gave the women a Zumba beach workout, which they thoroughly enjoyed. She organised the event and thanked all who made it such a huge success.Funds raised at the event are to be donated to the Scottburgh SAPS victim-friendly facility that offers support to victims of domestic violence and sexual or other forms of abuse. A second beneficiary of a portion of the funds raised is the Jes Foord Foundation in Durban. The foundation offers advice, counselling and support to victims of abuse and is instrumental in working with various institutions, like the SAPS, to set up victim-friendly facilities. The event was a resounding success and the respectable amount raised will be shared by both beneficiaries for a noble cause.- Supplied.
