I believe it is very important to give back to the community that has helped to establish and support me.
After all, everyone has a bit of free time on their hands to help make a difference in someone else’s life.
I currently support two organisations:
Royal Drakensberg School, for who I have been providing annual school photos since 2017.
Polar Bear Swim Challenge, that is in support of our furry friends. I got on board with this amazing event in 2020 by sponsoring some prizes.
“We make a living by what we GET,
But we make a life by what we GIVE.”

“Giving is not just about making a DONATION.
It’s about making a DIFFERENCE”
– Kathy Calvin –
The Drakensberg Polar Bear Swim Challenge is an annual swim that takes place every year in the Cathkin Park or Champagne Valley area, of the Central Drakensberg in the South African Province of KwaZulu-Natal.
The event has grown over the last four to five years to support the Khetani Animal Rescue initiative. Estcourt Animal Rescue and Khetani Animal rescue receive fifty percent each of the proceeds in cash and kind.
The Estcourt Animal Shelter, (EAS) on the Kemp’s Road in Estcourt is a shelter and refuge for abandoned, abused, and surrendered dogs and cats.
Royal Drakensberg Primary School is a small independent school, founded by God’s grace, in KZN’s magnificent Northern Drakensberg. Our aim is to create opportunities for every child to grow aware of their potential and to equip them to act on it. In the classroom, outdoors and in themselves, children are nurtured and encouraged to be their best. A solid academic program, our situation in one of SA’s most beautiful regions, and a dedicated team of staff ensure that children leaving Royal Drakensberg have a strong foundation on which to flourish.
To be regarded by pupils, staff, parents and educationalists as a leading small independent primary school.
Royal Drakensberg Primary strives to be a leading independent primary school for young children. It will provide a world class education by cultivating a culture that embraces holistic educational practices and the best lessons of South Africa’s unique non-racial democracy.
