The SHINE organisation

Natacha Berkowitz

Last year our club was a major supporter of Vintage with Love. We assisted by collecting and donating to Vintage with Love a huge amount of pre–loved and gently worn clothing , shoes and bags which were sold at a Vintage with Love event in Cape Town. Funds raised go to support literacy in South Africa – something close to the hearts of the Adele Searll Club and our members.

The SHINE organisation is one of the most active and highly successful projects in the area of improving child literacy.

In 2020 the Committee agreed to make SHINE a special Charitable Project and we have already funded and set up the first of hopefully a number of small libraries at SHINE reading centres.

The remarkable Adele Searll 100 Club held their latest meeting at a private viewing of the gardens of icon Ina Paarman’s home. This was without a doubt one of the best Adele Searll’s events where we were all treated to a fascinating trip down memory lane where the modest Ina spoke of her journey and path to success and how she, her late husband, and her son Graham have built the Ina Paarman brand.

Simply wonderful!

The last few weeks have been bitterly cold across the country and winter is not over yet! The Adele Searll Club 100 Blanket Drive came at just the right time. With the help of our members in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town we were able to deliver strong, warm and soft blankets to many deserving institutions.
