Crazy Nomad 🚴 Ride for Cancer Kids 🚵‍♂️


Crazy Nomad Jason Doyle and his good friend Tony Visser started their epic Fundraising Ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town (approximately 1 400 kms) on motorised bicycles to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust, last Saturday, 15 December.

The guys left from Melrose Arch on Saturday and have been making good time each day despite having to keep off the major highways due to their motorised bicycles only having 60cc engines (which means LOTS of pedaling) and dealing with some really bad gravel roads.

Fortunately they are quite flexible re their planned route and made some adjustments so that the road on Monday was not as bad as Sunday’s road….

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.

Epic Fundraising Ride Joburg to Cape Town on Motorised Bicycle


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.

The trip will take our riders on the back roads, starting at Melrose Arch, Johannesburg on 15 December 2018, and is the first of it’s kind.

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❣️ Harcourts Winelands 🙏


A few weeks ago the Little Fighters Cancer Trust was contacted by Hettie Denysschen from Harcourts Winelands, who had found out about the work that we do with Children with Cancer and their Families via social media, and had selected LFCT as a beneficiary.

We spoke a few times over the following weeks and the more Hettie found out about us the more Harcourts was committed to helping, which we of course were very happy about as it has been a very long and hard year and we are always in need of funding so that we can better serve our beneficiaries.

This culminated in an invitation to attend the Harcourts/Optimum Charity Golf Day Dinner on Friday night at the beautiful Pearl Valley Golf Course… and of course Lizelma and I accepted with alacrity.

Thank You “Vlytige Hande”


Once again our wonderful ladies from Klaradyn Retirement Village in Brackenfell, who tirelessly work together in a group called “Vlytige Hande” which loosely translates as “Diligent Hands” or “Industrious Hands” spent their time knitting and crocheting for various schools and organisations in the Brackenfell area.

Although the Little Fighters Cancer Trust is not situated in the area, we do work with Little Fighters and their Families at Tygerberg Hospital, so are also always included in the beneficiaries.

On Friday I spent a lovely time with all the ladies over a cup of coffee and scones, having a few good laughs, listening to all their stories and meeting some of the representatives from other organisations also there to collect goodies.

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…. 😉 ]

WONDERBAG Fundraising Raffle


Have you heard about the amazing South African invention “The Wonderbag“?

The Wonderbag is a simple but revolutionary non-electric heat-retention cooker. It continues to cook food that has been brought to the boil by conventional methods for up to 12 hours without the use of additional electricity or fuel. The Wonderbag is also a Coolerbag – it keeps food and beverages cold. Freeze it, bag it, store it, serve it.

The Wonderbag is great for mothers of Children with Cancer because it will free up their time in the kitchen while allowing them to cook nutritious, wholesome food for their family. You can start the food on the stove and then place it in the Wonderbag and go about your business without any worries – when you are ready for dinner it will be ready for you…

The food will taste great because it is slow-cooked  – from meaty stews and vegetable curries, to simple rice, beans, pasta, and soups, the Wonderbag cooks food beautifully and thoroughly. Meat is perfectly tender and vegetables retain their flavour and texture.

Each bag comes with a Recipe Booklet and you can browse the Recipes section of the Wonderbag website for loads more fantastic Recipes as well as Tips & Tricks, Cooking Times and Metric Conversions.

LFCT received a donation of one of these awesome Wonderbags in December from Tiger Foods to raffle off to raise funds…

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.

Where there’s a WILL there’s a Way


A few weeks ago the Little Fighters Cancer Trust received notification from a young man who was planning to use his talents to fundraise for LFCT and the work we do with Children with Cancer.

This is what we LOVE to see – people who use their talents and passion to fundraise for those who most need it!

Will is an “amateur” photographer and decided to make use of his talents by offering a special for the month of November to raise funds for LFCT.

Last week we received a wonderful financial donation from Will towards our work, and are very grateful that Will chose us, using his passion to fundraise for our passion – Children with Cancer & their Families.

Thank You also to all those who agreed to be photographed by Will for this fundraising project and allow us to publish their photos – all of YOU helped make this possible!

Check out Will’s Facebook Page, Photos by William!
