PSFA Blisters for Bread Charity Fun Walk

26 August, Sunday

10km, 5km, Fun Run/Walk, Top Events, Top Events

With the support and participation of the public, PSFA looks forward to accomplishing so much more. From the funds raised by entry fees alone, PSFA anticipates feeding 1 733 hungry school children for a calendar year. The 2018 walk is guaranteed to be as entertaining and exciting as previous years with live music, food stalls and prizes. This year the crowd when crossing the finish line, will be wooed by MTV Africa Music Award winner Kyle Deutsch. Heart 104.9FM, top Cape Town dancers and much more.

This year ‘Blisters’ will celebrate a milestone in the history of the event – its 50th anniversary! The first Blisters for Bread fun walk was organised in 1968 by 146 boys from Savio College in Lansdowne. The youngsters set out for a walk of 19 miles (30,5 km) from Simon’s Town to the school grounds in Lansdowne, each sponsored by firms or individuals. Heart transplant pioneer Prof Chris Barnard and Dr Philip Blaiberg, a heart transplant survivor, were among the sponsors to contribute to a total sum of R2644,62 raised in the first walk. The boys – mostly in school shoes – stopped for lunch in Muizenberg and made it home about five hours later. Patrick David Ives who participated in the first ‘Blisters’ remembered that there were no water stations like today but recalls getting a cup of soup at Muizenberg beach, while Terry Thornton raised R30 – ‘quite a sum in those days’.

Charity

Aware of the need for school feeding, the Rotary Club of Paarden Eiland (now the Rotary Club of Table Bay) called a public meeting, and the organisation was established on March 10, 1958.

PSFA is a registered non-profit organisation that addresses hunger in young learners and students attending primary, secondary and special needs schools as well as Orphaned & Vulnerable Children Centres (OVCs), Early Childhood Development Centres (ECDs) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Colleges (TVETS) in the Western Province.

PSFA’s main aims are to reduce short term hunger, enhance children’s ability to learn through school feeding and increase school attendance.

PSFA has to date provided over 1,6 billion nutritious meals to hungry school children across the Western Province.

PSFA is governed by a voluntary management committee that oversees the strategic and policy framework of the organisation, whilst day to day operations are managed by a full time staff complement.

Through good governance over the years, PSFA has built and maintained an investment reserve that generates interest enough to cover all operating expenses.

This means that 100% of all donations are directed exclusively to the actual cost of school feeding.

PSFA has a Section 18A status, which makes all donations tax deductible. Our NPO Registration Number is: 002-878.
