Roses Of Hope For Cancer

Union High School’s Interact Club has undertaken to support the Graaff-Reinet Cancer Association with their ‘2000 Roses of Hope for Cancer’ project this October.

The Graaff-Reinet Cancer Association hopes to sell 2 000 artificial roses (at R20 each), which will then be “planted” on the lawns of the NG Grootkerk on Friday, 18 October, between 07:00 to 18:00 by their purchasers.

The rose closest to a predetermined secret spot will win its owner R5 000. At 18:00 the secret spot will be revealed and the winner announced.

The members of the Interact Club would like to assist the Cancer Association by helping them to sell the roses.

Roses can be ordered from Interact members (at R20 each) from tomorrow, 4 October, to Thursday, 10 October, during first break (09:40 – 10:00).

Parents, friends of the Union Schools and Old Unionites wishing to support this endeavour can do so by transferring the money for the roses they wish to purchase to the Graaff-Reinet Cancer Association’s bank account. The details are as follows:

Name of Bank account: Graaff-Reinet Cancer Association
Name of Bank: FNB
Branch Code: 210216
Account number: 62005169570
Reference: Rose UHS Interact

Proof of payment can be forwarded to so that the buyer’s details can be captured on the list of orders.

All the roses are numbered and must be collected on the day at the church where they will be planted by their purchaser. A cancer survivor will plant the roses of those who are out of town on the 18th or who are unable to attend.
