Local charities score from exhibit

In all, R96 000 was raised for five Overberg charities by an exhibition of A5 drawings on Friday 7 December.

At the Originals Art Gallery in Hermanus The Night of 1 000 Drawings, a series of A5 drawings was on sale, each one R100.

Gallery owner Terry Kobus said he hoped to raise a further R4 000, bringing the total to R100 000 (each beneficiary receiving R20 000).

The original aim was to exceed last year’s figure of over R80 000 so each charity would receive a substantial donation. The following organisations are to benefit:

The Hermanus Visual Art and Design Centre. This organisation provides art and design classes for children from across the Overberg, many of whom cannot afford even the most basic art equipment and supplies.

The Overstrand Whale Boxing Club. The OWBC was established to take children off the streets, teach them discipline and give them a sense of belonging and pride. There are currently 40 children in the club, and this year one of them, Sipamandla, won SA national championship.

The Overberg Crane Group. This NGO works across the Overberg and has had a hugely positive impact on the population of Blue Cranes.

It saves injured and diseased birds, forging relationships with landowners and providing a valuable rescue, treatment and release service to secure the future of this iconic bird.

The Hawston Cadet Group. More than 50 children from Hawston, ranging in age from 8 to 13, belong to this group. The aim of the organisation is to give children a positive and safe environment, provide them with leadership skills and, through music and marching, to teach them the value of team work.

The Hermanus Art and History Project. Based on the Keiskamma Art Project in the Eastern Cape, this endeavour seeks to create skills and develop potential earning power for previously untrained people through the teaching of visual art, embroidery and sewing.
