Angels gathered the entrepreneurs participating in our Big Shake-Up programme in Cape Town and rowed their way to a strong finish in April at Rotary International’s Dragon Boat Race fundraising event. The team-building event was a lot of fun and all in a good cause: Rotary raised awareness for their projects to prevent human trafficking and women and child sexual abuse.

Bev Frieslich of Rotary and Lizelle Coombs share a laugh.

Sharron Brink said: I take this wonderful opportunity to just say thank you very much for a wonderful day on Saturday. For me, it was an experience of a lifetime!. I’ ready for work today and excited for new things to come. Once again, thank you Angels.
