Year-end fund raising lunch at the Zevenwacht Village Club House

Sunday, 22nd November 2015 at 12h30

The year-end lunch will take the form of the popular wood- fired lamb spit braai, expertly prepared by Leon Patterson. This will be accompanied by delicious salads and desserts, prepared by Slow Food members. If you’d like to supply a salad or dessert, please let Lorna know, and we’ll contact you closer to the time for more details.

Peninsula School Feeding Association will be the recipient of the funds raised by the raffle. We recognise that this organisation delivers an essential service in providing nourishing meals to schools in the Western Cape, and would like to continue our support for the association. For those members who are not familiar with PSFA, this is a registered non-profit organisation established in 1958, which provides nutritious cooked meals to 22,000 children in 111 schools. These are schools that do not receive the DoE subsidy, but require feeding.
