I choose to believe that we can each make a difference. The thought of a butterfly starting a rainstorm intrigues me.
Over the years I have supported the Financial Planning Institute, our industry professional body. The institute works to raise the level of professionalism among advisors.
Sterling has a wonderful tradition of supporting worthy causes instead of sending clients Christmas gifts. In the recent past we have donated to the NSIR, Meals on Wheels and the Endangered Wildlife trust.
The Hermanus Village Ball – is an initiative that I started in 2016 to honour the senior citizens of Hermanus. Neither wealth nor poverty separate the aged from loneliness. The United Nations have also identified that ageism is something to fight against and declared 1 October international day of the Senior Person. As close to the 1 October as possible we host a 3 course dinner dance and invite senior citizens from all walks of life. From Zweleshle township to Negester a gated retirement village everyone dresses in their finest. Thanks to my many sponsors it is a heart-warming evening.
