Durban’s Mr. Charity: Our member Victor Claudius

Mr. Victor Claudius, our member of nearly four years, has raised in excess of R110,000.00 during this short time, through his extremely hard work and perseverance. Over and above the money which he has collected for us he has donated goods such as: 40 beds and mattresses; dining room furniture; twelve picnic sets for the playground; five television sets and a video machine; a microwave oven; two chests of drawers; various blankets, toys, videos, books and clothes; biscuits, sweets and cakes at Christmas & Easter.

Some of the ways in which he raises the money is through recycling Christmas cards for resale, he holds second-hand book sales, he raffles donated items and he makes collections in shopping centres and at sports stadiums.

By far the biggest event was the concert, which he produced to raise funds for the Brotherhood of Blessed Gérard.

This year was the third concert, which was held in our honour. The South African Police Services Military Band got the crowd singing and clapping as they played well known tunes. The choice of music was excellent, including three of the languages of our province - English, Zulu and Afrikaans. The Big Band Variety Show was a great success having made more than R12,000.00 profit.

Mr. Claudius works tirelessly to help those less fortunate than himself. He really cares about others, with little thought for himself and continues to raise funds to help us carry out our work. We are enormously appreciative of Mr. Claudius' very hard work and selflessness.
