Oakhill has wrapped their trees in pink in support of a cancer related non-profit company, Pink Trees for Pauline which aims to create awareness, unite communities and raise money for those afflicted with cancer. Of all funds raised, 80% will be used in aid of improving the quality of life of those living with cancer within the participating towns. 109 towns across South Africa have already committed to being involved in 2015 and as a member of Cancer Alliance, various cancer related organisations, such as Cansa and Hospice will benefit from the funds raised.
Material to wrap your trees can be bought for a minimum donation of R20 per metrer and this fabric is later used by charities for skills development sewing projects. To join Oakhill and show your support in Knysna contact [email protected] or visit pinktrees.co.za for more details.
