Fundraiser for a safe house in Glenhills

2018-09-26 06:00

GLENHILLS Revival Centre, in partnership with the John Grace Foundation, have embarked on a fundraising venture through a family fun day event.

The event is being held to raise adequate funds to build a non-profit safe house in the Glenhills­ area.

The proposed safe house will help shelter the vulnerable in the community as it has been hard hit by drug abuse among the youth and suicides.

The also project aims to provide solutions to the epidemic of human trafficking.

“We want this safe house to also assist with the physically, emotionally, and mentally abused individuals. We cannot do this on our own and will need the assistance of the public by firstly inviting you to attend the family fun day on the September 29,” said Meshach Chetty, one of the event organisers.

Entry to the event is free.

The event’s exciting line up consists of a kids corner, soccer and volleyball tournament, a fun run and walk, human trafficking course, free promotional health clinic and a dyno day, show and shine and sound off with the assistance of car magazine Speed and Sound, co-ordinators Iasca and the famous Extreme Ridez Mobile Dyno.

The fun run will kick off the day’s event at 7.30 am and will cost R10 per participant — tickets will be sold on the day as well as by GRC representatives prior to the event.

There will be trophies handed out to the top three in four different categories.

Registration for soccer and volleyball will be open at 10 am. The soccer tournament fee is R300 per side with one rolling substitute. The winners will take home a R2 000 cash prize and runners up will walk away with R1 000.

The volleyball tournament fee is also R300 per side with a winner’s prize of R1 000 and runners up prize of R500.

Winners and runners up will also receive trophies with their cash prizes.

Food and drink will not be allowed into the venue as food stalls and a flea market will be available.

“We humbly and respectfully appeal to the public to attend this event and to assist in anyway with the building of the safe house. Should you want to provide a generous sponsorship, kindly call any of the numbers provided,” concluded Chetty.

The public can call 063 665 8171 for enquiries regarding the availability of food stalls or flea market stands.

Alvis Naicker can be contacted at 084 475 2780 for soccer enquiries and Isaac Abraham at 079 428 0345 for fun run and volleyball enquiries. Contact Meshach Chetty at 082 253 6363 regarding the sound competition, show and shine and dyno day.

For the safety of the public, the event will be protected by Hawks Security and a secure parking area will be available at a minimal fee.
