The golf day, which was held at Centurion Country Club on 13 November, was well supported by management, corporate guests and even a celebrity four ball team made up of Graham Pollock, Hugh Bladen, Rupert Hanley and George Swanepoel.

The Hospice relies almost exclusively on charitable donations from local businesses. It provides valuable day care for patients from different areas at its centres in Mofolo and Mapetla, as well as at its newest centre in Diepkloof. Patients are given the opportunity to meet with the hospice doctor, enjoy the company of other patients, learn handwork skills and share a nourishing meal. Trained community care workers support the Soweto Hospice team, helping to care for patients at home as well as at the In-Patient Unit (IPU).

Last year's ADT Security charity golf day raised R80 000 for the hospice, which was used in part to equip the new IPU facilities in Diepkloof. This year's funds will be used to ensure the Diepkloof centre remains sustainable with ongoing patient care provided by qualified caregivers employed at the centre throughout the year.

"Apart from being a great day for networking, the main aim of our charity golf day is to raise funds for Soweto's terminally ill," says ADT's Danna Strydom. "The event advances ADT's tradition of supporting our local communities, and we are proud to be an ongoing supporter of the Soweto Hospice."
