wHAT WE DO

Our Activities

SUPPORTING CHARITIES

The ladies involved in L2L care deeply for their communities.  These are ladies from all over South Africa.  As speicific needs are identified, L2L is able to identify when it is possible to support these charities or projects.

RAISING FUNDS

Our long standing relationship with our supporters, donors and sponsors facilitates the raising of funds. 

As a registered NPO (NPO 169-860), we spare no effort in using the money we raise to support the charities we have identified as beneficiaries.

WALKING

The founders of this charity walked to raise funds for their cancer charity in 2006.  This tradition is embedded in the vision and mission of L2L.

The walking is completed through the Official Charity Walk, the Practice Walks and the all new Virual Practice Walks.

BRINGING LIGHT

The ultimate purpose of a lighthouse is to use light to stop ships from crashing into land when visibility is poor at sea. 

The Overstrand is the L2L Ladies’ Charity sea and the aim of L2L is to support charitable projects in such a way that they are not shipwrecked due to lack of funds.
