Club Travel’s Financial Director, Gary Mulder, along with other golfers affiliated to the JDI Foundation recently turned out at the Westlake Golf Course to support this year’s worthy beneficiary of their fundraising efforts.
The JDI Foundation consists of various groups worldwide who shies away from making nameless donations, opting rather to foster a culture of change in individuals and organization which benefit from their contributions.
In close partnership with Club Travel, this year’s beneficiary was the CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation of South Africa. CHOC was established in 1979 as a support group to parents of children with cancer. Their aim is to ease the burden on parents by providing access to relevant, accurate information, as well as emotional and practical support.
CHOC runs 13 accommodation facilities for families close to treatment centres. With the funds raised at the Club Travel JDI Golf Day, we have enabled a housing facility in Plumstead to operate for a full year thanks to the donation of R106 556.
“I had a look through the dictionary to find the right word to thank Club Travel for this generous donation, and could not find one word to express our immense gratitude. The only thing I can say is thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” said Willie Loots, who together with his wife, Lana, runs the home and assist the families residing there for the duration of the children’s treatment and recovery.
Club Travel handed the cheque over to the CHOC home during a recent visit.
