Fat Future: A Noakes Foundation Banquet Fundraiser for Lavender Hill Community Programme
Hosted by The Noakes Foundation, Fat Future: A Banquet Fundraiser takes place on Tuesday 27 October at the Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town.
This special evening will be the last public talk of the year offered by Prof Noakes. Joined by Dr Westman they share their stories and reveal more on what our Fat Future currently looks like, and ways to change this for future generations. In addition, some of the amazing Ocean View programme participants will also share their stories along with Dr Hassina Kajee, the physician running the programme.
Following the recent success of the six-week project in Ocean View, Fat Future – A Noakes Foundation Fundraiser aims to raise R1.5 million to extend the community programme, EAT BETTER SOUTH AFRICA! into Lavender Hill. All proceeds raised at this event will go to this programme, which is earmarked to commence on 1 November.
