Or not, as the case may be! In fact, we’re letting our yellow rubber ducks swim free down the Royal Show stream…and it’s all in the name of a good cause!
Sponsor a duck for just R10 and see if yours will be the brave little duck that wins the daily race to claim a R1000 cash prize! This is a special event to raise both awareness and much-needed funds for CHOC, so look out for the CHOC ticket booths at the entrance to the Royal Show and support this wonderful organisation by placing your bets on a duck, or two, or three…
For nearly four decades, the Children’s Haemotaology Oncology Clinics, otherwise known as CHOC (Childhood Cancer Foundation) has been acting as a support group to parents of children with cancer, by parents of children with cancer. The aim – to ease the burden on parents facing the same journey by providing them with access to relevant, accurate information, as well as emotional and practical support.
As part of that support, CHOC has thirteen accommodation facilities close to cancer treatment facilities; and is faced with the challenge of rising maintenance and running costs. CHOC does not receive government funding, and relies on donations from a caring public to continue keeping more than hope alive…and that’s why every little duck helps!
