Madswimmer Jean Craven has been nominated for the 2015 Nightjar Adventurer of the year! His nomination has been for completing the six inter-continental swims and in the process raising in excess of US$300 000 for 11 children’s and orphanage charities in South Africa and Russia.
Today, a group from Girls High brought theatre to the Steve Biko Academic Hospital. Goldilocks and the three bears proved that not only healthy children enjoy to be entertained, but also those who are tied to hospital beds with cancer.
