The Day

Pink Lady® apples hosted their 14th annual Crafts for Cancer event on Saturday, 7th of October 2023 at Simondium Country Lodge. Every year this event is held to raise funds for the Tygerberg Hospital’s Breast Clinic Transport Fund.

At this event, 100 ladies participated resulting in R 45 000 being raised for the Tygerberg Hospitals Breast Clinic Transport Fund. This means that almost 80 additional ladies will benefit from the Fund.

The Transport Fund was started for the Breast Clinic at Tygerberg Hospital in 2010. The need for this fund was identified and initiated by a dedicated social worker at the Breast Clinic, Professor Apffelstaedt and what started as a small-scale initiative to assist one patient in need , has since grown to a fully-fledged fund that has helped countless women and continues to grow.

This year is our 15th year hosting this beloved event! Our craft this year is: Tote bag painting hosted by the lovely team from Artwave. With seasonal themes, from Matisse cut-outs to picturesque landscapes. In Artwave’s tote bag painting workshop, they share techniques and tips to help you achieve specific artistic styles, transforming a simple tot into a personalised masterpiece.

We will also have interesting Pink Lady® apple pairings to nibble on during the workshop.

“This project is very close to our hearts and the continued support we have had from ladies throughout the Western Cape over the years has been phenomenal.” Says Liza Matthews, Marketing Manager of Pink Lady®. “Every year just gets bigger! A big thank you to each and every one who attended or made a financial contribution to this event.”
