It was a beautiful day at the Hamel Farm in Izotsha on Saturday, where South Coast Hospice, together with Louis Wichman, and Ryan and Dayna Mostert, hosted a Family Fun Day.
Despite the heat, the 5km and 10km walkers and runners enjoyed the challenge. The event was supported by about 30 walkers and runners, along with a couple of pets proudly wearing ‘Woof for Hospice’ bandanas.
The Car Boot Sale provided an interesting array of items for sale from pancakes, popcorn, a large selection of books, to tools and delicious organic pineapples, while the South Coast Hospice bake sale was a delicious success, with items selling very quickly to those with a weakness for something sweet.
“We are pleased to have had a greater interest from the community,” said BT King, South Coast Hospice’s fundraiser.
“It was a beautiful day and we are thankful to all those who came out and supported this event. Our four-legged friends also supported us and added charm and delight to the day. Our gratitude to aQuellé who sponsored still and flavoured water to keep our runners well hydrated.
“Thank you to Louis Wichman and Ryan and Dayna Mostert for blessing us with the use of their farm in memory of Helen Mostert, who was a beloved volunteer at our Hospice. We are looking forward to having another walk on the farm in October.”
Superbodies Margate and Port Shepstone will be hosting an Aerobathon to raise funds for South Coast Hospice this Saturday.
Also look out for the South Coast Hospice Easter Bonnet Parade at Lili Crona on 20 April (5.30 pm for 6pm). Put on a ‘bonnet’, bring your dog and come ‘hop, run, walk, push, pedal for Hospice’.
