Nelson Mandela Bay Executive Mayor Councillor Athol Trollip has officially acknowledged recipients of the Mayoral Charity Golf Day during a hand-over event which was held at Teletubbies Day Care Centre in Despatch.

The Mark Headbush Foundation hosted the annual Mayoral Charity Golf Day, of which the aim is to raise funds for the benefit of education for underprivileged communities.

A total of R256 000 was raised, thanks to the generosity of the business sector and donated to the following beneficiaries: Amanzi Farm School (Uitenhage region), Teletubbies Creche in Despatch, Colchester Primary School, Elundini Primary School, Mother Cummings Daycare, Vigilante Daycare and Metro Organisation for the Disabled.

“The primary aim is to donate these funds towards sustainable infrastructure and facilities that will improve quality of education” says Headbush Foundation, Mark Headbush.

Community Chest administers and distributes these funds on behalf of the Mark Headbush Foundation.

“Our gratitude is extended to all the sponsors and donors that continue to support this worthy cause” says Community Chest CEO, Jimmy Gotyana.

The corporate sector has demonstrated its commitment over the years to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

The Executive Mayor and the municipality strive to work with all sectors of the community to improve lives of Nelson Mandela Bay Community. Education is a fundamental human right that no one should be deprived of, it equips our future generation to make a positive impact towards building our nation.

  • The 12th Annual Mayoral Charity Golf Day will be held on Friday 29 September 2017 at Port Elizabeth Golf Club. A call is made to the corporate sector to support and participate in this important event.
