SALEM Baby Care Centre’s High Tea Fundraiser was a huge success thanks to each hostess who assisted and bought tables this year.
This was a much-needed fundraiser as the funds are desperately needed for running costs to keep Salem’s doors open.
“It was very difficult not being able to pay staff in full and this fundraiser enables Salem to continue our services for two more months and we will continue fundraising. We thank our East London community for embracing Salem and giving us the assistance in time of need,” Salem director, Lereen Naidoo said.
The organisation have started with a pledge and have kick-started it with 26 pledges. “We will continue with Curry drives and Cupcake drives.We will also keep you all up to date regarding our annual fundraisers. Our next fundraiser will be a gala dinner on 9 September at The Venue at Hemingways,” she said.
Salem was one of the finalists at this year’s For Good Inspiration Awards and the R40000 received there “will keep us going for a month and we so appreciate this as the timing was an answer to prayer”.
