Year End Get Together (Friday, 4th December 2015)
As previously reported, it was a well attended event during which we sent around a donation box and we are pleased to announce that over R1000 was collected. We have used this money to buy Christmas Day food and donated it to The Douglas Murray house for the aged. We received the following letter of thanks:
Dear Friends
On behalf of the residents and staff at the Douglas Murray Home for the Aged we want to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation Zeekoevlei Yacht Club and residents for your wonderful donation of Christmas Hampers to the home.
In these tough economic times that we are operating in, we really value and appreciated every single act of kindness and show of support.
Your generosity and kindness is much appreciated.
God Bless and do have a beautiful day.
Warm regards,
Esme Fortuin
