Urgent funds needed for our Rock-Climbing children to represent Western Province on National Level
September 7, 2016 in Uncategorized
Two of our children have been awarded provincial colours in Rock Climbing. We need R2 500 per child to make it possible for them to represent Western Province at National level.
In 2013 the Mountain Club of South Africa invited our children to experience rock climbing and learn new skills while having fun at the same time.
Since 2014 two groups of children, eight per group, from the Durbanville Children’s Home attended training sessions on alternative Friday afternoons. Our children showed excellent progress and five of them were selected to become members of the City Rock Climbing Club.
Two of our kids have provincial colours
This year two children were selected to represent Western Cape Climbing in Johannesburg during the National Championships which will take place on the 1st and 2nd of October 2016.
The girl competes in the under 15 category, and this is the second year she was awarded her Western Province colours.
The boy is nine years old and will be on an airplane for the first time in his life. He will represent the Western Province in the under 13 age group.
Why we need support
Since 2013 the Durbanville Children’s Home has been subsidized by the MCSA and WCC which includes the training, camps, competitions and transport.
With two children from the Home attending the National Championships, the financial burden on the WCC is much bigger and we have received a request to assist with the expenses. WCC will cover the costs of the accommodation and transport in Johannesburg, as well as the climbing gear.
In order for our children to attend, the Home has to cover airfare to and from Johannesburg. This will cost R2 500 per child.
We call on the support of our generous donors to assist, giving our children the chance to show off their skills and determination.
