Averyle Timmet a retired Principal of Melton Primary school in Eersteriver was diagnosed with cancer in March 2014. Although, her battle with cancer led to her kidney being removed but today she is a healthy leader in her community. Other than Averyle’s community projects one of which is her annual Grade 12 Goodie Bag Drives, Averyle and her Cuppa for Cancer ladies have been raising funds for charities who are working in the field of cancer for the last three years. Their 2016 Ladies Breakfast known as the Averyle’s Cuppa for Cancer event was a huge success. A total of 120 women attended and each one received a lovely goodie bag and spot prices were also handed out. A CHOC House Plumstead mother, Caroline Plaatjies shared her granddaughter’s journey and how she and her granddaughter were placed at CHOC House Plumstead. Two breast cancer survivors, Carmen Isaacs and Leonie Fredericks also shared their journeys and this brought great inspiration to the women present. All the proceeds of the event were donated to CHOC. Thank you to Averyle and the ladies of the Cuppa for Cancer event for the generous support.
