Three of the ten Mrs Commonwealth 2015 finalists hail from Uitenhage.

Charmaine Hendricks, Hendrika Simons and Lynn Liberty recently attended the finalists’ workshop and as part of their journey each has to raise a minimum sponsorship of R12 000. These funds are utilized to cover various costs and to facilitate social and upliftment programmes.

The registered charity of choice to benefit from the Mrs Commonwealth 2015 pageant is PinkDrive.

Charmaine Hendriks, the current Mrs Uitenhage and Mrs Mzanzi Africa 2014 finalist is planning to host a modelling pageant in association with the Cancer Association of South Africa with the aim to raise funds, supporting PinkDrive.

“It is a dream of mine to have my own events company through which I want to empower women. Women should not stop following their passion in life the moment they get married,” said Charmaine.

The modelling pageant she is organising will be held at the Allanridge Civic Centre on July 31st at 18:00.

Admission will be R20 and to enter the pageant the fee is R50. There will be a special guest speaker and models will have to fit in with the PinkDrive theme. For more information regarding Charmaine’s event contact her on 073 428 8876 or e-mail

The grand finale will take place at The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on September 12th. Prior to this the finalists will have to attend a boot camp from July 24-26.
