Plaster Day

Thank you to Learners, Schools and Corporates who wore civvies on 25 May 2012 in our first national Plaster Day, sponsored by Elastoplast.

Well done to the pupils of Laerskool Bakenkop who raised the most money; Tyndale Christian School who most creatively combined Elastoplast plasters with their civvies; Cannons Creek School who won the lucky draw for schools that had 100% learner participation. Each of the three schools won R15 000 sponsored by Elastoplast. Well done everyone!

Col’Cacchio pizzeria Celebrity Chef Series

The 4th annual Col’Cacchio pizzeria Celebrity Chef Series from May to August included gourmet chefs, Jackie Cameron, Coco Reinarhz and Chris Erasmus creating designer pizzas with R5 from every Celebrity Chef Pizza sold donated to the Trust. This year Col’Cacchio pizzeria fans were invited to submit their own pizza recipes, with the winning pizza featured on the menu in August.

Surprise guest judge was SA MasterChef’s Benny Masekwameng who applied his renowned judging skills to help select the winner of the Col’Cacchio Pizza Challenge. Votes from Benny, Jackie, Coco and Chris were unanimous – Jessica Comninos, from Johannesburg, won with her scrumptious Asian chicken Liu Loren Pizza.

Krayons Baby Products

Your purchase of Krayons babywash, aqueous or petroleum jelly between May and December 2012 will help many sick babies continue to get excellent medical care with a donation of R200 000 going towards the building of a new Radiology Department at the Hospital. Krayons know that a happy baby means a happy mother so they have also been donating baby products for moms to take home once their babies are discharged.
