Convoy for Kids/Party like Rock Stars

Convoy for Kids

Inspired by Somerset West’s Reece Barends’ battle with cancer, the Somerset 1 dynamic Facebook group is dedicating their first birthday party, the Rock Star Party, to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust (LFCT) on Saturday, 13 December at the Nameless Pub.

The group, started by Stephen Leppan, prides itself on the spectacular events it holds to raise funds for charity.

Saturday 13th December is going to be a day to be remembered in Somerset West!

The day will begin with a convoy of truckers from the Western Cape Truckers Association meeting at the N2 Macassar Engen Garage whence they will depart at 12 noon and drive in convoy through the Somerset West CBD to the Mondeor Garden Restaurant on the N2.

Children are invited to come along for a ride in the trucks as they proceed, collecting new toys, for the LFCT Christmas Elf Project.

At the Mondeor Garden Restaurant, the truckers will hand their gifts to Little Cancer Fighters Trust. Members of the public are welcome to meet the trucks and come enjoy a great afternoon with the children.

Hannes van der Merwe, representative of Western Cape Truckers, said “We want to make this an annual event, and will be building up to match the popularity and size of the annual Biker’s Toy Run.

About LFCT

CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit Childhood Cancer support 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
