Club Travel’s Financial Director, Gary Mulder, along with 128 other ardent golfers turned out to support the 10th annual Club Travel JDI Golf Day held at Westlake Golf Course, on Friday 21st Nov 2014.
The JDI Foundation consists of various groups worldwide which encompasses a diverse group of individuals whose ethos shies away from making nameless donations, opting rather to foster a culture of change in individuals and organisation which benefit from their contributions. In close partnership with Club Travel, this year’s beneficiary was the Masiphumelele - based organisation ‘Waves For Change’. Their aim is to turn previously disused township beaches into hubs for skills training and social justice. The organisation trains local community members and equip them with surfing skills as well as provide programmes where vulnerable youth receive social, health and educational support.
The day was a huge success, seeing us raise our highest amount to date, a staggering R108 975 through the tremendous support from our players and friends at Turkish Airlines.
‘Waves For Change’ used the funds raised towards opening a container “office” in Muizenberg. Club Travel, through our Club Cares initiative, have several on-going initiatives helping ‘Waves for Change’ which include upskilling the coaches with sales and interviewing training.
