Welcome to the Foundation’s official news page, where you will find details of recent press releases, activities, and event information. This month sees the launch of our series of virtual events after we had to postpone our face to face events due to the pandemic. In our first virtual event Mike and Barry Richards take us through the early years of their careers, as well as the highs and lows. View the video here.

The next event will take place on 28th April at 2pm UK time/ 3pm SA. Details to register will be available via our events page very soon.

Lastly, we would like to thank all of our donors who regularly provide critical funding to help enable the Foundation to achieve its mission.
