Mandela Day is celebrated every year on Nelson Mandela’s birthday – 18 July - to honour his legacy and his values, through volunteering and community service. South Africans and people around the world are encouraged to commemorate Mandela’s 67 years of fighting for social justice by giving 67 minutes of their time to do good on this special day.
Wild About…Exploration, SANCCOB’s Environmental Education centre, recently launched its new and exciting birthday party programme. In June, they proudly hosted their first birthday parties for Jared Francois (4) from Blouberg and Dune Watkins (8) from Table View. As the honourary birthday boy and girl, Jared and Dune got to wear a special penguin outfit and together with the other party guests, was entertained by SANCCOB’s ambassador penguin, Rocky the Rockhopper.
