HELP FOR UMLAZI JAZZ CLUB (article first published : 2006-11-15)

Based in Umlazi, the Sekusile e-Executive Jazz Club helps old age homes, orphanages and schools for children with special needs.

The following article by Ken Mchunu was gleaned from Ethekwini’s Gazette: “Sekusile chairman Themba Ngidi said the club was all about making a difference in the lives of the needy. “We want to use our talent to make a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters who cannot do anything for themselves,” said Ngidi. The band hosts jazz sessions at the Umlazi Executive Hotel weekends.

Occasionally, feature guests are included to draw a larger crowd and so make more money for charity.

However, the band believes it is not realising its charitable ambitions. “We desperately need financial backing from businesses,” he said. He urged people to attend the jazz sessions and, in so doing, “make a small contribution towards changing the lives of the disadvantaged”.

Those able to help this jazz club in support of its efforts to raise funds for charity should contact Ngwenya on 082 428 5249.
