Ladies’ Garden Tea Fundraiser

The amazing support and sponsorship that Singakwenza received enabled our Blackwood’s Home of Gardening Ladies’ Garden Tea on Saturday 4th February to be an enormous success. Despite the intense heat, the 200 ladies that attended had a wonderful afternoon, with the irrepressible Tanya Visser providing a most informative and entertaining presentation on water-wise gardening. The funds raised will enable us to start mentoring in a new crèche in the second term. What an incredible gift to give to our community – THANK YOU!

We had a number of “Hostesses” who invited 10 guests to sit at their tables. They decorated their tables and provided some delicious eats for their guests to enjoy.

A special mention needs to go to Ben, from Ben’s Dance Studio, for very kindly loaning us the sound system to use at the event.

A huge thank you, too, to all the hostesses, the 8 Mile swimmers who assisted with this event, and our Singakwenza team, as this would never have been the success that it was without all their hard work!
