Community news: SA Cares for Life pizza bust with Panarottis Menlyn

Thank you for your generosity today, Panarottis Menlyn. One of VDT's staff members submitted a motivation for a Panarottis pizza bust, and together we were able to express our appreciation to a wonderful community organisation, SA Cares for Life, by surprising them with tasty pizza from Panarottis Menlyn.

Here’s the motivation that made the magic happen:

I first met Sanet Fagan from SA Cares for Life in 2018. My firm partnered with them and GROOTfm to build a school for residents in Pretoria’s so-called Plastic City. You can read about the work they do here: https://www.sacares.website/.

My respect and admiration for her and her team know no limits.

This is a woman, mother and wife who has dedicated her life to helping babies and children who would otherwise have no hope. 

She works tirelessly and selflessly to build a better life for those who have no voice.

She is beautiful. She is kind. She has the courage which I lack to actively engage with suffering and hardship every day. 

She does it with grace, compassion and love.

She does it when she has good days and when she has bad days; when the sun shines and when it rains; when she is feeling optimistic and when she is feeling hopeless – she continues to serve. 

Sanet and her team are a beacon of hope and light in a community that desperately needs it.

I would be so grateful if, for once, they could be served instead of serving, if they could receive, instead of giving. 

Thank you for considering this request.

Mediation – a go-to option for divorcing couples

Mediation – a go-to option for divorcing couples

At the heart of divorce proceedings, lies an intense personal battle between spouses. Enter mediation as a growing alternative dispute resolution mechanism aiming to preserve relationships and protect the psychological and emotional well-being of children and adults by avoiding drawn-out and combative court proceedings. In this article, we take a brief look at mediation as a go-to option for divorcing couples in South Africa.

Outstanding charges, body corporates and sales in execution

Outstanding charges, body corporates and sales in execution

Recently our Supreme Court of Appeal had to consider whether a purchaser was entitled to only pay for outstanding levies of a sectional title property that was sold in an execution sale or also the other outstanding charges such as water, sewerage etc. where the terms of the execution sale only required payment of the outstanding levies. In effect, the court had to consider whether a body corporate could be forced to accept a lesser amount because of the terms of a sale in execution.
