St Luke's Hospice
Established in 1980, St Luke’s Hospice is a non-profitable organisation which aims to meet the special needs of patients who are terminally ill or who are suffering from life threatening illnesses. They are reliant on the public sector for funding to maintain the selfless duty they perform to those in need, as well as their families.
True Lies annually helps sponsor the “Tree of Lights” ceremony in support of St. Luke’s Hospice and encourages everyone to do the same. Should you wish to contribute in any way to this organisation, please visit their website at http://www.stlukes.co.za for further details.
National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI)
The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is aimed at saving lives at sea and operates from over 30 bases around the coast of South Africa. The heartbeat of the organisation is its 1000+ skillful, experienced and unpaid volunteers, who are on standby throughout the year, day and night.
The NSRI relies solely on donations and sponsorships to cover the costs involved in operations and training.
With one of our members being an active volunteer since 2009, this is a cause that lies close to our heart. As such, True Lies supports the organisation in a variety of ways and urges everyone out there to do the same. Please visit their website at http://www.nsri.org.za/, to find out how you can contribute to the organisation that might someday save your life, or the life of a loved one.
Alternatively, you can download one of the debit order forms available, one option is tax deductible whilst the other is not, but enters you into a national draw. Please see options listed below:
Either way, all donations are station specific, in this case Melkbosstrand, the base responsible for the coast between Milnerton and Bokpunt, near Ganzekraal.
Disa Stars is one of the Wynberg Netball Sub-union clubs that was born in the heart of Athlone; where a desperate need exists to offer an alternative to children living in extremely difficult socio-economic environments.
Starting with nothing, this club has been able to offer children from the age of seven, an opportunity not before available to them. They now have five teams which are thriving both on and off the court. In their short history, they have been able to develop and present talents which would otherwise have been lost, which four girls already having been selected to play in the WP trials, one of which have received provincial colours.
True Lies supports the needs of the children in this club on a regular basis and should you wish to assist us in doing so, we would be happy to direct you to the appropriate club members. Please contact Megan at out office (021 555 1411) for any further information needed.
