Charity Golf Day - May 2022FFETA, in terms of its corporate responsibility, will be hosting a Charity Golf Day in May next year at the Gary Player designed course at Blue Valley Hills, with the beneficiary being "Children of Fire" which is a charity established in 1996, by founder and current director Bronwen Jones who realized there was a desperate need for an organization that could assist young South African burn survivors. The socio-economic challenges of South Africa contribute greatly to the high incidence of burns among children and so the charity began to focus on education in informal settlement communities on the dangers of fires and ways to prevent them.

It was felt this charity was most relevant to FFETA and the fire industry as a whole. We are seeking sponsors for anything from caps and shirts to entertainment for the evening.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Rosemary at the FFETA administration office on 011 455 3157 or rosemary@saqccfire.co.za
