The Connie Mulder Centre has 120 female residents and big plans for their Women’s Day celebrations on 9 August. “Although our centre is partially state-subsidised, we rely on a number of fundraising events to alleviate the strain on the budget. We also place a lot of emphasis on decorating the venue, arranging for an appropriate guest speaker and showering the female residents with items of food and gifts,” said Gordon Henney, chief executive officer. He said that he is hoping that the community will contribute to this wonderful event by donating items of food. If you can assist in any way, please contact Fransie Hulme or Gordon Henney at the centre on 011 278 9904/ 5 /6 or send an email to info@conniecentre.co.za or ceo@conniecentre.co.za.
