This Tuesday (14 December) the volunteer social will be at the Villagers Rugby Club, supporting the Brothers Streep (a South African 'Acoustic Comedy' band) at their annual Christmas Charity gig. Another South African band, 'K, Ray and the Bird' will also be performing and amazing the crowd with their harmonies.
Volunteers are to meet at Villagers Rugby Club (which is in Claremont, only a few minutes from the Newlands office). See map below:
Hope to see you all there just before 8pm, entrance is R20, and bring extra for dinner as the club serves excellent food at very reasonable prices.

As I post this blog, Ryanne is sitting in her freezing cold home country, Netherlands, at -1 degrees celsius, quite a contrast to her South African home of Cape Town which happens to be at 32 degrees celsius today! Ryanne, we all miss you lots already! - Emma :) (Text below by Johnlyn) “On Tuesday 30 November, Ryanne van Dormolen left the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office after fulfilling her 1 year tenure as Volunteer Supervisor. The sentiments shared by fellow staff were the following: Ryanne's professionalism, passion, perseverance and courtesy to clients. She truly embraced the South African culture and can be considered as 'half South African' after venturing around the City and particularly hiking up and down Table mountain numerous times. We will miss Ryanne and wish her everything for the next chapter of her life.”
