Fine & Country South Africa have followed the footsteps of the Fine & Country Foundation here in the UK, setting up their own Foundation to help the homeless. It is fantastic that the success of the Fine & Country Foundation here has inspired South Africa to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.
Last month, Tony Webb did a power-point presentation to the Fine & Country Western Cape Branch Principals explaining what the Fine & Country Foundation hoped to achieve and how South Africa could take up the challenge and set up a similar Foundation. The presentation went well and it was agreed that South Africa should pursue the concept.
Linda Erasmus is also planning on doing a presentation to the Johannesburg branches and wants to set up a section 21 company, which is a non-profit company that could manage the charity/foundation funds.
More recently, the Fine & Country False Bay office situated just outside of Cape Town organised a fashion show in the little fishing village of Kommetjie. It went extremely well and over R15000 was raised. The proceeds of the Fashion Show will be going to Living Hope, which supports those living on the streets.
We wish the Fine & Country Foundation South Africa every success and look forward to more updates on what great events they are hosting to raise money for such a rife cause that affects so many around the world.
