Crazy Nomad Crazy Fundraising Tour


Team LFCT is starting to get very excited, but not as excited as Crazy Nomad Jason Doyle and his good friend Tony Visser, who will be starting their epic first of its kind fundraising tour from Johannesburg to Cape Town this coming Friday, 15 December 2018.

They will be doing a Fundraising Ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town (approximately 1 400 kms) on motorised bicycles to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.

The trip will take our riders on the back roads, starting at Melrose Arch, Johannesburg on 15 December 2018 and everyone is invited to witness their send-off which promises to be quite spectacular. Hundreds of Motorcycles from various clubs around Gauteng will escort them out of Johannesburg.

If all goes according to plan, our intrepid riders should arrive in Cape Town on 30 December 2018.

Thank You Universal Music


The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to send out a big shout to Elli Koutsouvelis and Universal Music Africa for the FANTASTIC donation of R25 000 worth of product for our Family Festive Care Packages.

Our offices are full of great goodies that were delivered on Monday and we are happily falling all over them as we get ready to sort and pack all the wonderful goodies we have, including Christmas presents for our Beneficiaries and their siblings across the country.

Our Onco Parents are also well taken care of – in the form of a wonderful Care Package filled to the brim with food, toiletries, cleaning products, personal hygiene items and a few treats for the Festive Season so that they too can enjoy a bit of a break from worrying about the devil cancer and have sufficient to eat over the Festive Period.

Lions/LFCT 2018 🎄Christmas Party🎅


The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to give a massive shout-out to the Lions Club of Paarl who sponsored and organised a wonderful Christmas Party for our local Beneficiaries and their Families this past Sunday.

LFCT organised two tour “bussies” to collect our Families and deliver them safely back to their homes again after the party – thanks to our great drivers from Ruiters Tours & Shuttle Services.

LFCT would like to send out a hearty thank you to all the Lions and volunteers who put in all the hard work of organising the party and being there on the day to ensure that everyone had a great time!

Thank You, you really made our beneficiaries and their siblings feel loved and spoiled and gave their parents a few hours of relaxation and enjoyment as well, and that is what it is all about; looking out for the whole family.

Thanks also go out to The Drop Outs Motorcycle Club who came on board with some wonderful presents for our Little Fighters.

Here at the Little Fighters Cancer Trust we (and our supporters) do some really wild and wonderful things to fundraise so that we can continue providing help to the most vulnerable of South Africa’s citizens; Children with Cancer and their Families.

This December will be no different, and while most individuals will be enjoying somewhat of a break over the Festive Season, one of our supporters, Jason Doyle, aka Crazy Nomad will be doing a Fundraising Ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town (approximately 1 400 kms) on a motorised bicycle to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.

Alba Equestrian Centre Jump for Cancer Touches the Stars!!


The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to extend a massive, heartfelt thanks to Alba Equestrian Centre for hosting the very first (to our knowledge) “Jump for Cancer” in South Africa (perhaps even the world) to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness as well as to raise much-needed funds for LFCT.

We were contacted via our Facebook Page on 2 August by a lady named Carla du Plessis, whom we assumed was the owner, regarding a “Jump for Cancer” show-jumping show that they wanted to hold on 23 September in aid of LFCT, and of course we jumped at the opportunity.

As the weeks went by, Carla regularly updated us as to all the wonderful people who were coming on board to partake as well as all the great sponsors and we got just as excited as she was at every new announcement…. it is always such a pleasure when a partner includes us in all the arrangements and shares all the exciting news with us because that we also get excited and can update all our supporters and potential donors/entrants with the latest news 😀

Little Miss & Mr Winelands 2018


On Saturday night Lizelma and I were privileged to attend the Little Miss & Mr Winelands 2018 Competition as the Little Fighters Cancer Trust was the beneficiary on the night, and what a wonderful, sparkling, professional, fun evening it was.

Young ladies and gentlemen from all over the Winelands took part and strutted their stuff on the stage – we were just very pleased that we were not asked to be judges as they had an enormous task ahead of them – but they acquitted themselves very well.

It was such fun to watch the little ones, the young ladies were all decked out in their finest gowns and the gentlemen were decked out in their fines too, bow ties and all [ Lizelma wanted to take one or two home with her…. 😉 ]

Thank You 🤼‍♂️EFC Worldwide, BetXchange & Demarte Pena🤼‍♂️


Extreme Fighting Championship Worldwide hosted 10 international fighters over the past several months who, together with local fighters, took part in a round-robin tournament.

The fighters competed in two teams; the Blue Team (Sayed) and the Orange Team (Pena).

A running theme every week on MMA reality TV show, TF1, was the teams predicting the results of the fights on the show. Every week, BetXchange provided odds on the fights and the teams placed ‘bets’.

The winnings were pooled to later be donated to team-selected charities; Team Sayed selected Fight with Insight as their charity and Team Pena selected the Little Fighters Cancer Trust as their charity.
