Care in action at the Club Travel /JDI Golf Day

24 Jan 2017

The 2016 Club Travel /JDI Golf Day raised more than R110 000 for Paedspal Paediatric Palliative Care, a Western Cape programme providing care and support for children living with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses.

The event, which took place at the Westlake Golf Course in Cape Town on 2 December 2016 was a huge success thanks to the support of all the players, sponsors, Club Travel suppliers and staff, and JDI. “Our hearts are so warmed by the generosity of all who were involved, in particular our friends at Turkish Airlines who donated two business class tickets that went for R53 000 in an auction on the day,” says Gary Mulder, Club Travel’s Financial Director.

Paediatric Palliative Care is a new approach to the specialised care of girls and boys living with life-threatening and life-limiting illnesses. It is the science and art of lessening physical, psychosocial, emotional and existential suffering. “We have no doubt that the total R114 950 raised will go a long way in assisting the good work Paedspal does in the Western Cape,” says Gary.

This event and its beneficiary were suggested by JDI, a non-profit, public benefit organisation that encourages people to go beyond making nameless donations and rather get together by pooling resources, time, skills and energy to provide help to disadvantaged communities in South Africa.

“Club Travel subscribes to the JDI ethos of ‘See. Think. Do.’ and is committed to continuing its support of worthy initiatives such as this event,” concludes Gary.
