The 2020 Greyton Rose Fair community project raised R76 000.00
By John McGlashan, Chairman
Being able to disperse funds raised from the Greyton Rose Fair is always a great pleasure each year, but even more so this year as we thought we were going to have a 2020 “No-Show”. But, I am happy to report that this was not so. Although we did not have all the favourites this year, we introduced a two-weekend show, when the open gardens were on display for a longer period.
Our combined money raised this year from donations, sponsors, open gardens and the raffle totalled an amazing R76 000 (Last year we raised R85 000). On behalf of our “PUT A SMILE ON A CHILD” project, this is how we disbursed some of the funds:
Greyton House School Bursary Fund
Uitkyk School - for much needed books
Joy2Read – for training new volunteers
Vrolike Vinkies Creche – for lunch meals
Greyton SpeelsenmtrumCreche - for materials for their premises
We have retained some of the funds for other projects that occur during the year.
If anyone would like to donate anything at all to the effort please contact John McGlashan 076 393 0462 or 028 254 9746 firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you wish to make donations directly to the Rose Fair Bank account the account details are:
