St Martin's donate to hospice
St Martin’s School in Rosettenville invited Stepping Stone Hospice’s CEO, Tersia Burger, to their mass service held on Friday October 7, in their St Peters Chapel. Headmaster Reverend Malcolm Chalmers used the opportunity to announce that funds raised with their prep school's civvie day on Friday, are to be donated to Stepping Stone in honour of World Hospice Day, October 8.
A sum of R8000 was raised. The donation was initiated by one of the prep school's teachers, Mrs Caryn Scallan, whose partner was cared for and passed away at Stepping Stone’s In-Patient Unit in New Market Park in June last year.
