At a meeting of agents on 6 July Lisa Osrin proposed a beach clean up and in subsequent discussion of this suggestion a broader community action initiative seemed to enjoy support from a number of agents giving each agent a chance to manage a project for a few hours in their area


The discussion came to the following points of consensus for further investigation;


1) It would be a monthly team activity
2) The activity would preferably be located in the organising agent’s farming area or zone
3) The activity would be aimed at benefiting the community
4) It would be arranged with Andre – to arrange publicity and marketing before and after the event as well as logistical support
5) It would creating visibility and online social media marketing opportunities

6) Agents would be expected to participate on a ‘you support me and I will support you’ team basis
7) the activity / event to be arranged so that the team volunteers can ‘come and go’ within two hours duration on an agreed day
8) This to be part of ChasCares (ie Cape Town South contribution)
9) Participating agents will give their activity or event concept (meeting the above conditions) to Andre to coordinate who will maintain a monthly register of events on ChasCares page on and assist with the organisation particularly with respect to the marketing

We will use our Chas Cares “Pledge 67 Hours of Team Community Service” to tie this into the Mandela Day
