We Supported The Sunflower Fund’s Walk in January

In January we also supported The Sunflower Fund’s Walk for a Purpose at the Emerald Resort and Casino in The Vaal Triangle. We donated R 20 000 to them and met Jason Greer and Edith Venter – it was a funfilled day in the sun. There were pets that also did the 5km walk and special trained dogs that did tricks for us.

About Mark Scott:


Well known radio presenter Darren Scott and his wife Sarah’s 16 month old son, Mark, was diagnosed with kidney cancer. The community of Hartbeespoortdam were shocked to hear this.


Little Mark received chemotherapy and it was reported that the tumour had shrunk enough to remove it. The operation and the chemotherapy are costly treatments and the Scott family had no medical aid.



About Mark Scott



A music day was organised. The concert had a childrens theme and was decorated with balloons. 25 artists, including Dozi, Kurt Darren, Ricus Nel, Nicholis Louw, Arno Jordaan, Die Cambells, Liza Bronner, Pieter Koen, Rudi Claase, Monique, Han Blohm, Kevin Leo, Andreis-Hendrik Potgieter, Hennie Jacobs (7de Laan), Ray Dylan, Monique Foxx, Heinz Winckler and Zandre made an appearance that Sunday, 29 April 2012, to help raise funds.
