As most of you might know by now, due to this awful COVID-19 pandemic, PSFA had to unfortunately cancel our popular fundraising event Blisters for Bread during 2020 and then again this year. Our 53rd Blisters for Bread would have taken place this year on Sunday 29 August.
Blisters for Bread is a very important event for PSFA for the following reasons:
- It creates vital awareness of childhood hunger at schools hence keeping the work done by PSFA to address this challenge, in the hearts and minds of the South African community.
- Over 13 000 people walk every year – the event raises an average of R680 000.00 per annum through entry fees. 100% of this money is allocated to feeding hungry schoolchildren.
To commemorate Blisters for Bread, PSFA staff, representatives from our general committee and their families gathered together near the Mouille Point Lighthouse on Sunday 29 August at 9am, to walk from the lighthouse along the Sea Point Promenade to the Presidents Hotel and back again.
After completing the walk, each person was presented with a bag filled with goodies kindly sponsored by Good Hope International Beverages, Sneaker LAB and Outside the Bowl.
This activity was a great opportunity for the staff to have fun together and honour Blisters for Bread, a PSFA annual event that first took place in 1958.
