Interact Club Visit to Ida weKwako Old Age Home 2019

Recently the Interact Club visited Ida weKwakwo Old Age Home to deliver new appliances for their kitchen.

As a Club, we decided to direct the majority of our raised funds to renovating the Ida weKwakwo kitchen. Money from the Valentine’s Day roses’ sales in February this year bought the Old Age Home a new refrigerator and a new electrical stove.

We presented the new appliances to the residents who were completely overwhelmed and literally beaming with delight! Some stood up and began to lead in song which everyone joined in. It was a happy and fulfilling afternoon; we left the Home with a very cheerful group of people.

Michael Zartmann Achieves Gold 2019

uke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Congratulations to Michael Zartmann who has completed his Gold Award. He worked for over 52 weeks at Mountain Biking, Trombone tuition and Conservation. For his Adventurous Journey, he chose to hike the gruelling 65km ‘River to River’ Expedition. Much of this Journey was spent navigating and cutting through virgin bush, vines and thick riverine jungle.

The Residential Project is one of the unique aspects of the Gold Award where pupils have to stay in an unfamiliar setting doing voluntary work for five days and four nights. The feedback we received from people running the KweKwe & Redcliff SPCA described Michael as having been ‘exemplary’ on his five day Voluntary Residential Project, where he worked with animals coming into the SPCA in some very difficult and tragic circumstances.
