Annual General Meeting


Due to the insufficient number of members being available the catering for this event is expected to be disproportionately expensive and the meeting itself would be basically ineffective without sufficient input from members.
The revised date proposed is 27th January 2019 which is therefore both the AGM followed by celebration of  Waitangi Day & Australia Day.
Subject to approval we will request using :
THE VENUE:     Natal Mounted Rifles HQ opposite the entrance to Durban Country Club
TIME:         The time is yet to be agreed and will depend upon the Catering choice accepted bearing in mind the committee will be looking at either a quote from Supreme Caterers as was accepted in principal or a quote for the traditional spit braai.                 
MEAL:        Option 1: Thai Green Chicken Curry with Basmati rice. or 

                                         Spaghetti Bolognaise all served with Salad and dressing, Sambals,

                                         Chutney/ Grated cheese, plus bread rolls and butter.
                       Option 2:  A spit braai   The committee ladies will provide Pavlova, ice cream, fruit salad and a cheese board or two to go with either option.
DETAILS:     Please try to attend as input from members is essential in mapping the future events for ANZA-KZN

We operate a shelter for Natal’s homeless and destitute and we are a Registered non-profit organization. Our aim is to provide a non-judgemental welcoming atmosphere. We believe every human being is valuable and no one should be stigmatized because of their past or present situation. All of our residents are treated with compassion and respect.
What do we provide? We provide shelter, food, clothing, bedding and access to doctors, clinics, hospitals and social welfare departments. At present we are sheltering approximately 55 people which include 8 kids as well ranging in ages from 2 to 15. These people come from all walks of life; poverty has no social barriers. Christian spiritual guidance is offered daily as we have regular devotions; Bible study and church services led by ministers from churches on the South Coast.
Our care centre is solely reliant on the kindness of donations from people like you. We do not receive any grants or help from the government. Our objectives are basically to feed, clothe and shelter the homeless and less unfortunate; teach job skills to the unemployed where possible and assist our people in the rural and surrounding areas.
PLEASE consider helping us in any way you can. Help spread the word physically and spiritually.
We greatly need your assistance. If possible, please assist us:

·         FOOD is always a necessity
·         Bedding, clothes, furniture
·         Toiletries, cleaning materials, first aid items
·         Building materials, wendy houses (urgently needed)
·         Other ways to help are to sponsor fuel, electricity or gas
Yours faithfully

Two recent events

1. The Potjie Competition.

2. The Observation Car Rally held on the 12th of August was rated highly by those who competed however contrary to expectations only five teams took part.

October 2018 HANGI

In recent years ANZA has held several Hangis that have been reasonably effective.
However this years Hangi is going to something quite special.

The Hangi is a classic New Zealand way of cooking underground to celebrate special occasions such as weddings and significant birthdays.

This year we are privileged to have a specialist, Bert Tuhi, to organise a unique Hangi at a very well suited venue that has ideal facilities for such an event. Namely College Rovers.

Bert is a qualified butcher who has been preparing Hangis and spit braais for more that 40 years in South Africa.

For details and purchase of tickets please click on the following link:

 This is a unique event that should not be missed. It is open to the public!
