Blisters for bread


Blisters for Bread in association with Lucky Star Virtual Celebration Walk & Concert
A Virtual Celebration for a Real Difference

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a sudden and substantial negative impact on all sectors of our economy, and long-lasting effects on our communities.

This year, we are celebrating our annual Blisters for Bread Walk in an untypical environment.

While this popular charity family fun walk will not be taking place in its original format this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PSFA invites you to join them in the fight against hunger by entering and participating in your own walk with family and friends in your neighbourhoods or communities from now until Sunday 8 November 2020.

Enter now
Enter your walk at the cost of only R60 on Quicket (Link:
Your entry fee will enable PSFA to provide 24 school children effected by poverty with a nutritious cooked breakfast and lunch for an entire day.

Virtual Celebration Concert
Included in your R60 entry fee, is a complimentary ticket to the virtual celebration concert starring Cape Town pop sensations Jarrad Ricketts, Craig Lucas and Palesa Xola Toto (Idols season 15), which takes place on Sunday 8 November at 1pm. For those of you who do not wish to do a walk and just want to watch the concert, the ticket price is also R60 and can be booked on Quicket.

PSFA also invites you to share your memories of the fun you have had participating in past Blisters for Bread Walks over the years in the form of photos, written accounts and videos.
Some of these will be selected and shared during the celebration concert.

“Blisters for Bread has never only been about how many steps you take or how quickly you finish the walk. It has always been about families and friends spending time and having fun together, creating awareness about childhood hunger and raising funds to feed hungry school children” says Petrina Pakoe, Director of PSFA.
