On the 21st of February 2017, the Outreach group of Richards Bay High School had a fundraising event in support of the C.H.O.C. organisation.
C.H.O.C. Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa is an organisation that provides practical help to children with cancer. This support is also extended to the children’s families as the diagnosis of cancer brings about enormous distress, emotional and financial, on the families.
So, the Outreach group of RBHS saw it a necessity to help collect funds for this very thoughtful initiative. Learners of RBHS were requested to come to school wearing blue on Tuesday and render a small donation in support of the fundraising event. The Outreach group also brought cupcakes, doughnuts, sweets, etc. to school and sold to all the learners of the school. The learners were very receptive and responsive to this call to help save a life and everything was sold out.
At the end of it all, a total amount of R5351-50 was raised and all funds shall go towards C.H.O.C.
The Outreach is very happy have helped “Keep more than hope alive”, which is the motto by which C.H.O.C. is driven, and is grateful to all the learners of RBHS who contributed to making this day a success.
The Outreach also stands firmly for the efforts of C.H.O.C. and intends on engaging in the business of saving lives with them in the near future.
