MASITHETHE counselling services held a high tea last Saturday as part of their fund-raising drive to enable the organisation to offer counselling free of charge to those who have been abused, are depressed, suicidal or have family problems.
The high tea took place at the Nahoon Methodist Church.
Masithethe director, Jackie Orsmond, said they currently have counsellors in 18 schools in East London.
“We have satellite offices at the Gompo Library in Duncan Village, we’ll be opening one at King William’s Town Child and Youth Care Centre, and are opening one at Nontyatyambo Clinic in Mdantsane in May,” said Orsmond said.
The high tea was supported by the Hudson Port Rex Lions Cubs, women from the East London Hindu Society, staff from East London High School and St Johns Road Primary School, and Masithethe volunteers.
In total, R10,000 was raised.There was also raffle ticket competition with Maita Mazambani emerging as the top winner, winning a weekend voucher for the Morgan Bay Hotel.
