Orphan's Lunch!

Having missed some of the recent Orphan's Lunches, I must declare this one to have been a fantastic success! The organisation and catering was outstanding, the spirit was awesome, and there was a very generous spirit to make it a very successful auction! 

News just in reports R22-000 was raised for the charity, which goes a long way to feeding orphans and indigent pensioners in Hanberg. This is a fantastic effort from a relatively small number of people and is something Hout Bay Yacht Club can be extremely proud of. It also makes the lunch that much more special. This is the Real Spirit of Christmas!

Special thanks to all those who made it happen - especially, Paul and Liz Pigneguy who organised the event, with support from Taffy and Shirley as always, and to Robin Parker for running the auction as usual. Never mind Werna, who runs the charity!!!! What a champion! (who have I missed?)

I suppose the Scottish Minstrels should also get a mention, see them here!
