Celerating life of poet

The Cape Town Burns Supper Club will host its annual Burns Night fund-raiser, celebrating the life and works of Scottish poet Robbie Burns and raising money for charity, at Kelvin Grove Club, on Saturday February 10, from 6pm. As with all Burns Night celebrations across the world, the Cape Town event presents Scottish culture and festivities. Guests will raise money for local causes and will be ushered into the main ballroom by the drums and pipes of the Cape Town Highlanders Pipe Band. There will be toasts, entertainment and a three-course meal with haggis. All the proceeds of an auction on the evening will support the Sarah Fox Children’s Hospital for under-fives needing palliative care or with terminal illnesses, Christine Revell Children’s Home for youngsters from abusive or broken homes and iKhaya Loxolo Lase, a shelter for abandoned and terminally ill people in Gugulethu.
