Welfare Society Somerset East in support of the Luvuyo Centre

The Welfare Society Somerset East is a proxy NPO that raises money for three NPOs in the region. Their 9th Annual Charity Golf Day aims to boost the coffers of the three charities listed below.

Child Welfare South Africa: This organization was established to address poverty and to attend to the special needs of previously disadvantaged people in the area. Educational awareness programmes are vital at this time, especially for the youth who are the most vulnerable and often abuse drugs because of their dire circumstances.

Then there is the Mary Coetzee Foster Cluster Home

The Mary Coetzee Foster Cluster Home initially started as a children’s home and in 2008 was converted into three cluster homes. Each house can accommodate six children and a housemother. The children range in age from 2 to 16 years. Siblings are kept together, to try to recreate a sense of family unity.The Department of Social Development subsidized them by way of stipends & administration costs, however, they no longer receive a subsidy from the Department of Social Development due to subsidy budget cuts throughout the Eastern Cape.

The third one is the Luvuyo Special Day Care Centre.

 The centre is a school for children with special needs in Somerset-East. The children in the home have severe physical and intellectual disabilities.  

 It is the only centre in the Blue Crane district that caters for their needs and provides support to the families of children with severe disabilities.

THE SOMERSET EAST ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF DAY: We need golfers to come and support our event!


The event started off with a very informal discussion in December 2012 by a small group of friends who were all born in Somerset East.

The first event was organised in December 2013 and only 40 Golfers participated. It grew from 40 participants to 121 in 2021. The event is now in its 9th year, due to a 2-year break as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019 &2020.

It is rated among the top 3 most sought-after events by Eastern Cape Golfers. This is mainly due to the level of organising and the integrity in how it is managed.

This day is supported by golfers from around the country and has recently attracted many junior and female golfers.

The event is endorsed by the Blue Crane Municipality as a social responsibility vehicle in the town which provides a platform for the youth to develop in the sport of Golf.

The Key Objectives are:

To contribute and be a vehicle for social upliftment in the town of Somerset East Youth awareness and Development in the sport of Golf.

To motivate all Middle-class entrepreneurs to participate in the social upliftment of the town
