8 years ago just 2 Care Clowns went to visit the Red Cross Children’s Hospital. Now they are part of a national movement of over 100 volunteers – spreading hope, love & joy to approximately 3500 people each month.

THE UP is so excited to share joy with Cape Town and in celebration of community & reconciliation and their 8th Birthday… they are making December 16th a FREE FAMILY FUN DAY. So prepare for a day filled with laughter, play and FREE JOY and even a Free Theatre Show. “It is time for us all to re-ignite that warm and fuzzy feeling of being a kid again? And Maynardville Park is the perfect playground to bring family and community together – so we can all connect to the playful, smiley, joyful spirits in us all…”

Bring your picnic, your water, cool drinks (no alcohol), your sunblock, your shade (and a wrapped gift to donate to a needy child) and prepare yourself and your family for an inspired day of FREE FUN FUN FUN…The FUN day begins from 14h00 with endless games and laughter till 17h00.
