Cell C Playing for Pink Polo Raises R130 000 for Breast Cancer

A record R130 000 has
been raised for breast cancer thanks to Cell C’s Playing for Pink
Polo which took place at the end of 2017.

Reigning Miss South Africa Dr Adè van Heerden yesterday
handed over a cheque to the non-profit organisation Reach for
Recovery’s Ditto Project which helps breast cancer survivors,
with no medical aid or funds and who cannot afford to undergo
breast reconstructive surgery following diagnosis and mastectomy,
single and or double, achieve balance and dignity.

Reach for Recovery provides prostheses to those who
cannot afford breast reconstruction for a donation of between R50
and R75. Reach for Recovery also helps these women by walking the
journey with them, from diagnosis to recovery, offering strength,
guidance and compassion throughout the experience.

This is the third time that Cell C has been the title
sponsor of the Cell C Playing for Pink Ladies Invitational Polo
Event which took place at the Inanda Club in Sandton late last

In 2015, the event raised R50 000, doubling to R100 000
the following year. In 2017 it again broke records.

Says Cell C Managing Executive: CSI, Suzette van der
Merwe: “We are delighted with the R130 000 raised which will
allow Reach for Recovery to help more women. Cell C’s core focus
is women empowerment and, an event such as this, is the perfect
vehicle to raise awareness and show our support to those women
affected by, as well as those victorious in defeating, this

“The polo invitational is a glamorous event but there is
a serious message behind the day’s festivities. It was a pleasure
to work alongside The Unlimited Group and the Inanda Polo Club in
bringing a world-class polo event to enthusiasts of the sport
which continues to grow in attendees year-on-year.”
