Pink Lady® & Tru-Cape Crafts for Cancer 2013, 19 October
This year’s fund-raising initiative for the Tygerberg Hospital’s Breast Clinic Transport Project was held at D’Aria Winery in Durbanville. Tygerberg Hospital’s Breast Clinic diagnose on average 30 women per month with breast cancer. About 21 of these women are from the lower income bracket and although government covers their treatment costs, they still can’t afford getting to and from hospital for vital treatment. 2010 saw the very first Pink Lady® Crafts for Cancer workshop, and since then it as been an annual event.
This year I was fortunate enough to be given a ticket to this event by a dear friend. The theme this year was: ‘Today I remember to be grateful’. The craft workshop was presented by Ciskia Hanekom of Ideas/Idees Magazine. Ciskia guided us through the steps of Japanese book binding as we created our very own Gratitude Journal.
