Support local charities at this year's fairEvery year the fair places a major emphasis on raising money for good causes through charity stalls and this year is no different. Entrance to the fair costs R30 with funds raised from entrance fees going towards the important work carried out by the Tshwane SPCA.
In addition to the Tshwane SPCA, also look out for the charity stall presented the Sungardens Hospice, a Pretoria-based NPO who provide specialised palliative care to patients in the Pretoria area (including Mamelodi) with progressive, far advanced, incurable diseases.
