Rooi Rose KANSA Tee’s 2015

‘n Baie groot DANKIE aan rooi rose vir hulle jarelange ondersteuning aan KANSA en die geveg teen kanker.

Pretoria:

Die rooi rose SPAR KANSA tee Pretoria ten bate van Die Kankervereniging van Suid Afrika was vanjaar weer eens ‘n treffer! Dit het plaasgevind by die Saint George Hotel met 160 tafels en 1600 gaste wat, die rekord bedrag van R386 000 is ingevorder is ten bate van KANSA.

Die tema was “VARS”! Die hart van die geselligheid is die viering van ‘n nuwe begin vir baie kankeroorwinnaars en hul families. Die KANSA-gesellighede vind plaas gedurende die lente – wat ook ‘n tyd van ‘n nuwe, vars begin is. 2015 is die jaar om bietjie groener te gaan in ons leefstyl, om inspirasie te vind by ons familie en natuur, of dit platteland, seekant of stadslewe is.

Die Kankervereniging is baie trots om met rooi rose, SPAR en die ander borge geassosieer te word. Dankie aan rooi rose, Spar, Club Med, Air Mauritius, Old Mutual, Ceres, Lapa Uitgewers, Justine, Pink Lady Apples en nog vele ander borge.

KANSA is baie dankbaar vir die gasvrouens en gashere met al die moeite wat hulle gedoen het met die dek van die tafels. Hierdie persone wy baie van hul tyd daaraan om die Kankervereniging passievol te ondersteun.

Dankie ook aan die 1600 gaste wie daar was om die geleentheid te vier. Dankie vir Suné van Rooi Rose en haar span en ook aan die vrywilligers wie so hard gewerk het.

Riaan Gruywagen was seremoniemeester, terwyl Martie Pansegrouw, redakteur van rooi rose, Elize Joubert, Hoof Uitvoerende Beampte KANSA, Jerome Jacobs van SPAR sprekers was. Elma Postma, Sophia Kapp, Bertha le Roux en Julie Steynberg, Difference Makers Int. San Diego S.A was gassprekers. Elvis se seun en ook Oosterlig skool se sanggroep het almal vermaak met hul musiek.

Almal was dit eens dit was ‘n onvergeetlike geleentheid! Dankie vir almal se ondersteuning om kanker te beveg.

Stellenbosch:

This past Saturday rooi rose magazine hosted another lovely‪ #‎KANSAtee‬ for CANSA Cape Metro, Boland and Overberg in Stellenbosch!

rooi rose se redakteur, Martie Pansegrouw het genoem: ‘Sommige hier is dankbaar, ander is bekommerd, ander is ONBEWUS. Dis hoekom rooi rose CANSA ondersteun – sodat meer mense bewus gemaak word.

Almal was diep geraak toe Martie gevra het dat al die kankeroorwinnaars moet opstaan en baie sterkte toegewens het.

Die geliefde Iris Bester het haar kankerreis met ons gedeel. Sy het ook ‘n pragtige gedig geskryf en belangrike boodskappe was: ‘Vertrou jou gut en maak seker!’ en ‘Ek besef ek moet elke ondervinding beleef en leef.’

‘n Spesiale dank gaan aan al die gasvrouens – julle het soveel moeite gedoen met liefde en entoesiasme! Sonder julle ondersteuning sal die dag nie ‘n sukses kan wees nie. Lees gerus die pragtige boodskap van een van ons gasvrouens in die foto’s.

‘n Groot dankie gaan ook aan al ons rooi rose #KANSATEE borge. Julle maak ons hande sterker.

Jak de Priester het ook almal vermaak met sy pragtige sang en kwinkslae!

Baie dankie aan elkeen wie dit bygewoon het en natuurlik aan rooi rose! ‘n Groot tjek van R91 000 is aan CANSA oorhandig. Saam beveg ons kanker!

2012 – niQi’s Cuppa Inspires

2012 – niQi’s Cuppa Inspires

niQis-Le-Creuset-Cuppa-350x26211 October 2012 – There is such a wonderful life-affirming energy that comes about when one’s passions marry with a cause that is close to the heart. Last weekend, niQi Living Luxe co-ordinated a high tea as part of the Host A Cuppa campaign; a nationwide drive by Le Creuset and CANSA to raise awareness and funding for cancer support.

Each of the guests contributed a donation to benefit CANSA and their work, and the phenomenal generosity of these ladies helped raise  R10 000!

niQi put together a tableau that represented her theme for the afternoon; Surrounded By Inspiration. Instead of a traditional centrepiece, niQi envisioned something more conversational. Working with Pollen Living Art, she conceptualised a floral arrangement that symbolised a bridge; the concept being that one could cross a bridge to overcome whatever challenges might be placed in ones path. Inspirational messages and quotes hung from the flowers, offering food for thought and encouraging guests to consider their own inspirations and aspirations.

The afternoon’s palette was based on pink (an homage to the CANSA and Le Creuset campaign colours) with accents of beautiful coffee tones and soft greens to complement the flowers and tales runners. The guests were asked to dress in light summery colours where they could.

The tea-time menu featured traditional High Tea fare, with a cheese board and a very special  french posh-nosh; calissons, as special highlights.

Tea, however, was still the main attraction and for favours, each guest took home a box with gourmet tea packs and a teapot-shaped sugar cookie sporting a pink ribbon to remind them of the cause they supported. Read more…

Our Cuppa For CANSA was borne out of an idea that my youngest daughter had regarding her birthday celebration. Instead of a party for her, we should host a party for all those that have been affected by cancer and especially in fond memory of my parents who both died of cancer, the grandparents she never knew and her Aunt, a survivor of cancer, who lives in Australia.

As a family, we have been blessed with being creative, each in our own way. So, we set about to make, bake and create a “rainbow tea”. We chose the theme based on the ribbons worn  to embrace all types of cancers. We only pinned the colour lavender on our guests, as this would represent any cancer that had touched all our family and friends. We moved inside outside to have the tea in the garden.

Our long kitchen table was a focal point in the middle of the lawn, adorned with flowers in a multitude of colours from the garden. The TV lounge couches were used as extra seating in the shade. We baked and iced in rainbow colours and the cakes were interspersed with glass bowls of brightly coloured sweets for fun. Not just the young folk enjoyed these!

Family and friends ranging in ages from 10 to 82 came and we all had a cuppa or two, chatting, catching up and  just relaxing in the garden on a cool, wonderful Cape Town afternoon. Memories were made by taking photos with a backdrop of our handmade  rainbow.  Generous donations were put in our old family coffee pot. Many people acknowledged the need to stop and remember our loved ones or those being affected by cancer and support organizations like CANSA for the great work they do.
