The first Feelgood Summer Picnic Concert at the Wellbedacht Estate in Wellington, on Saturday night ROCKED!!!

There is nowhere that I would rather have been on Saturday afternoon/evening than at at the Wellbedacht Estate in Wellington, home of Schalk Burger & Sons. The setting was stunning…. lush lawns, a dam, loads of friendly people, sunny skies, wine tasting, a delicious picnic platter and live music!! What more can a girl ask for?

We got there earlyish and just lazed around for a few hours (which LFCT NEVER does… always on the move), enjoying the sun (alternatively trying to duck it), and listening to the “No Name Band” 😉 doing their very professional sound-check… people watching and walking along the dam wall, watching a family of ducks going for their afternoon constitutional…. what BLISS!!

Then the band started playing and the peeps got into the groove – even though there was rolling load shedding, the band never missed a beat thanks to their foresight to bring their own generator with…. NOTHING was gonna stop us having a JOL!!

As the sun dipped behind the horison (or in our case behind the trees)… La Luna rose in all her glory and the party got going in earnest. Tommy, Tania and Mandie were presented with their “Supercapes of Gold” and Mandie had a live band and a few hundred people sing Happy Birthday to her….

We bopped and sang our hearts out to all the best numbers from Neil Diamond, Bob Marley, Elton John, Queen, ABBA, Tom Jones, Eurythmics, the Beatles…..and many more! WOOHOOO!!! The crowd was dancing in front of the stage and in the aisles, and EVERYONE was singing.

When it was time to go nobody wanted to leave and we BEGGED the band for an encore.. which they did YAY! 😀

All I can say is 🎵 I had the Time of my Life….🎶

For those who did not make it ~ you missed out!!!

BUT do not despair; this will be a regular occurrence, and the next Feel Good Event for Little Fighters Cancer Trust, will be in the first quarter of 2015.

MASSIVE thanks to Nicolette and Justin, the cast and crew, Schalk Burger & Sons and every person who bought a ticket to support LFCT….

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
