The first fund raiser event of the year is set to take place on the 17th May at the Book Lounge, and it looks like it will be a night to remember!

All of us have memories of old school bazaars – well it’s time to revisit them…There will be a pudding table and a white elephant table and – it goes without saying – a tombola.
Toast Coetzer and Stephen Timm of Buckfever Underground fame, will be performing on the evening, and are not to be missed.

We’re not charging a cover, but items will be on sale, so please do bring a little cash.

All proceeds will go towards buying books for the library at Westridge High School.

Time: 17.00 onwards
Place: Book Lounge, 71 Roeland Street, Cape Town, 021 462 2425
