Social media lawyer becomes a Compass Cares ambassador in support of CROW

Her voice can be heard every Tuesday morning on East Coast Radio’s breakfast show, giving invaluable advice on social media law. She was born and raised in KwaZulu-Natal and comes from a long line of lawyers – five generations! Verlie always knew she wanted to go into law. “Everyone who knows me will agree that I have argued my way through life!” explains Verlie.

She is married to Greg and has two young children, Hope and William, and they share their Durban North home with three dogs, five rabbits (and counting), a hamster and a pot belly pig called Blossom!

According to Verlie, conversations around wildlife are extremely important to her family with her mother and husband both wanting to be game rangers at one stage in their lives.

“As a serious city slicker, it is such an honour to be involved with this campaign and be able to play my part in the welfare of wild animals,” concludes Verlie.

The Compass Cares’ 2018 ‘African Kaleidoscope’ wildlife calendar is A3 in size, gift boxed and sells for R180 (excluding postage). The smaller CD size desk calendar, which features the same stunning photos, retails for R50. All proceeds go to CROW – the Centre for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife – for the rescue, rehabilitation and release of orphaned and injured animals.

Chocolate wrapped and filled wafer. On a chilly winter night, there’s really not much more we want than this, a mug of coffee and a good book.

Buon appetito!

With nothing but a suitcase full of dreams and her faithful friend ‘the cello’, Cecilia Di Cecco left Italy to work as a musician with the KZNPO in Durban. Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
