Casual Fridays at Carrick aren’t just about dressing down; in a short period of time the team have managed to raise just over R4,000! The Fig Network is an organisation that provides impoverished communities all over Cape Town with a home cooked meal amongst other things, and they were selected as the recipients of monies raised. Catherine and Nazreen from Carrick volunteered their time to do what girls do best – shopping! They bought loads of canned goods, fresh meat, rice, spices and vegetables, all of which were used to cook up a storm. Communities that benefitted from this contribution were Hanover Park, Vygieskraal and Kewtown with The Abdurahman Clinic in Kewtown being the main recipient in this area.
