Bikers Rev it up in support of The Sunflower Fund

Close on 180 bikers took to the open road on Sunday 1st October in support of The Sunflower Fund’s 5th Annual Ride4Hope, in association with RBS Yamaha, and in conjunction with the KZN Motorcycle Federation (KZNMF). It was a beautiful spring morning and bikers were treated to a hot cup of coffee at registration compliments of Wimpy and Torrador at the NPN Auto Centre in Pinetown.

En route to the Shongweni Farmers and Craft Market, motorcycle and outdoor enthusiasts from across KZN donned their commemorative 2017 cloth badges and brightly coloured Sunflower TOPES. It was an inspirational sight as the biker convoy ascended Field’s Hill all in the name of a worthy cause.

Prize-giving was filled with excitement and revelry as bikers enjoyed brunch and craft beer, whilst several lucky winners walked away with fantastic prizes including a raffle hamper valued at R1700. DJ Martin van Tonder and Jeff Pharo of the well-known band, DV8, kept the crowd entertained. The trophy for the biggest club entry went to the Durban Harley Owners Group. PR & Event Specialist for The Sunflower Fund in Durban, Allison Ekstrand, shared a heartfelt speech on the good work of the organisation and thanked those in attendance.

Much-needed funds raised from the event will enable The Sunflower Fund to create awareness, and to educate and recruit more blood stem cell donors. The more donors on the Registry the more hope of life patients diagnosed with leukaemia have of finding their 1:100 000 donor match.

The Sunflower Fund would like to thank RBS Yamaha, KZNMF, MOTH Motorcycle Association, Durban Harley Owner’s Group, NPN Auto Centre Pinetown, Shongweni Farmers & Craft Market, Anna’s Glass Art, Embroider It @ Parklane, DJ Martin Vee, Jeff Pharo and all other associated sponsors and supporters.

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff. On an international level, we are of course envious of some of the adventurous, fun and fabulous products on the market (not all of which we can always get our hands on), so we simply cannot contain ourselves when every now and again we stumble across some equally great brands produced on our very own doorstep…


50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
