ALUMNI NEWSLETTER MARCH 2020

A SUCCESSFUL BERTIE LUBNER LEGACY WEEK 2020

The Bertie Lubner Legacy Week continues to inspire young people to follow in the footsteps of this philanthropic giant, whose legacy still echoes in our hearts. Once again, the Alumni Network organized vibrant and educational events at all our centres.

We had over 100 volunteers eager to give their time to local organizations and schools participating in the Legacy Week. Among these were Childline, Autism South Africa and Ithlokomeleng Old Age Home.

As is the custom, the week kicked off with the launch of the Legacy Museums, curated exhibitions of the life and times of Bertie Lubner. This served as an important reminder of the difficult social context within which Bertie Lubner sought to make change. It’s no wonder his incredible achievements continue to motivate our young people. This year, our members got busy with community service, painting, cleaning the centres and preparing food for our elderly.

The entire week was an unforgettable movement, providing an opportunity for our members to give back in the spirit of responsible kindness.
