Brigitte Melly is raising funds for Duzi Umngeni Conservation Trust

This time I'll be doing all the Midmar Mile events & a bit more! The Midmar 16 Mile 2020 involves swimming each of the events over the course of the weekend, as well as swimming to the start line each time!

I'll be raising money for DUCT (Duzi uMngeni Conservation Trust). As a conservationist and water quality specialist, this is something that is close to my heart. Our water resources are SO important and we need to look after them. DUCT assists in raising awareness for the river health of the uMngeni and uMsunduzi Rivers, and also assists in developing creative solutions to water quality problems, that involves the surrounding communities.

20% of the funds I raise will also go to the following smaller charities: Special Olympics, Little Eden, Umngeni SPCA, Pietermaritzburg SPCA, SA Guide Dogs, KZN Cystic Fibrosis, Pevensey Place, Thandanani, Society for the Blind & Deaf, Village Safe Haven, Gateway Christian School, iThemba Lethu & SA Legion

Please feel free to donate any amount, as any contribution will make a difference!

NOTE: If any donations require a S18A Donations Tax certificate (i.e if you would like your donation to contribute towards a tax refund) please let me know

Thanks in advance for your donations and please let me know if you have any questions,
