Orphan's Indeed!

News just in:



"ORPHANS INDEED: Members of the Orphans Club, from left, Jimmy Higgins, Reinhard Klose, Henk van t'Hof, Achim Duncker,, Jeremy Nel, Henrie Geyser, Ron Dean and Mike Lundy, all of Hout Bay, admire the selection of fine wines on auction at their annual gather at the Hout Bay Yacht Club last week. The
Orphans, a group of businessmen in small or one man business, gather for a Christmas lunch as their businesses don't traditionally have one. The 26 strong group choose to spend their money on raising funds for fishing pensioners in the Hangberg area. This year they raised more than R17-000 through "fines" and bids which will support a church organised group that supplements  food and clothing for pensioners living on meagre income. The money is enough to support the organising committee's work for a year."

This is an outstanding achievement from a small group of people in the club, and was a purely spontaneous gesture from a bunch of our stalwart members. Makes one proud to be part of HBYC!
