March Events

We have a few big events heading our way this week...

On Thursday 26 March at 11h00 we will be hosting farmers' wives from the Darling area for an information session on our Darling Parenting Project. This project focuses on nurturing skills that parents need to help their children grow and develop to their full potential. This project ran very successfully on Morningstar Farm last year and this year we are hoping to expand the project to other farms in the area.

This afternoon, we are hosting some of the TB patients from our local clinic, for a tea at Evita se Perron. We are all looking forward to a very special outing!

With the school holidays just around the corner, we have started planning our holiday programme, in collaboration with Darling Fokus. The programme will run from 6-9 April and will include a theatre workshop, an outing to Yzerfontein and more!

Good morning!

My most sincere apologies for not updating the blog sooner, but we have been experiencing a few problems with our computers. But, everything is running perfectly now.

First, I must share with you our March Newsletter ! Take a look and let me know what you think.

Last week Tuesday, I had the great privilege of attending a fundraising workshop run by Jill Ritchie. She has been working as a fundraiser in the NGO field for many years with great success. The fundraising workshop covered all the bases and really gave great insight into how fundraising works. The timing could not have been better, as we are currently putting together our fundraising strategy for 2009/10. In the past we have been very generously supported by individuals and organisations. If you are interested in partnering with us on a project, or event, please do not hesitate to contact us. In the coming weeks, I will be contacting existing partners to set up plans. I am very much looking forward to this exciting chapter in the life of The Darling Trust!
