Rotary Interact Club members with teacher, Maggie Naidoo and Aggie Govender.
Tongaat Secondary School’s Rotary Interact Club managed to raise a staggering amount of R7, 000 for Childhood Cancer Foundation of SA (CHOC).
Dedicated club members generously handed over a cheque to Aggie Govender, the regional manager of CHOC KZN, recently.
She was overwhelmed by the dedication of the enthusiastic young pupils, who raised the money by holding bake sales at the school during the month of October.

This was no mean feat especially considering the tough economic times currently, and the fact that majority of the pupils of the school come from poor backgrounds.
The vibrant club has undertaken no fewer than four projects per month this year, ranging from pampering and serenading lonely pensioners, to collecting food and household goods for orphans living in appalling conditions.
While they live up to their motto of ‘service above self’, they have proven time and again that the future of the country is indeed promising.
