Thanks to the tireless efforts of Marlene Hooper and Co, the CMC’s charity fundraisers managed to a mass a not inconsiderable amount of money to be donated to the club’s various beneficiaries, namely the Edenvale Care Centre, the South African Guide Dog Association and Free Me. Of course none of this would have been possible without your generous contributions. So the next time you’re approached on Club Sunday by someone bearing a clip board and a smile asking you to buy a raffle ticket, I implore you to support their noble efforts. As has become tradition, the final club ride of the year is an opportunity for the members to see where all the fundraising goes.
The first stop on the run was to the Edenvale Care Centre, where a cheque for R8000 was handed over to a very grateful Sister Leigh. From there, the convoy made its way to the Peri-Peri restaurant in Edenglen where they were joined by the wonderful people from the SA Guide Dog Association and Free Me. After a well deserved breakfast Marlene and Pierre presented them with their cheques for which they were very grateful.Here’s a few photographs from the day:
