The month of September is known as Deaf Awareness Month. The 2nd is Casual Day in South Africa which is in support of the Disabled.

Not many of us really consider or even really pay attention to the plights of people suffering with disabilities or from being deaf or even dumb or blind for that matter. That is until we are physically brought into contact with perhaps a family member or friend who has become disabled in someway or another.

To show your support for this month, make sure you buy a Casual Day sticker, which only costs R10.00, and dress up casually on the 2nd of September 2011!

In Lenasia, the MC Kharbai School have a theme selected which is ‘Rock Stars’. Its bound to bring quite a fun aspect to dressing up!

Also on the 2nd of September 2011, the Sunflower Fund Golf Day takes place at the Wanderers Golf Club.
Its being held in benefit to those with Leukaemia.
All funds raised are used to pay for donors wishing to join the South African Bone Marrow Registry but who are unable to afford the cost of the test.
For bookings please contact Lauren Corlett on 011 783 4568 or email:

I hope everyone will support these and other upcoming events.

See you there!!
