Tickled pink

If you are tickled pink while driving down the road towards  Glenburn Lodge & Spa, and seen a tree wrapped in pink material and wondered what the purpose was? We have the answer and the story behind these fabric clad tree trunks is one of love, faith and hope – one that continues to inspire.

The story behind these fabric clad trees trunks that line the streets,  is one of love, hope and faith. All of us have been touched with some form of cancer, whether it be directly or indirectly, Carol-Anne van Jaarsveldt lost both her mother and grandmother, both named Pauline to this dreaded disease. By wrapping pink fabric around trees rooted alongside  the roads of her hometown of Graaff Reinet, she hoped to, not only heighten cancer awareness, to unite communities but also help raise funds to assist those living with the disease.

For the past few years, Glenburn Lodge & Spa has been  on a special tree-wrapping campaign in aid of those affected by breast cancer.

“One of the main reason we got involved in this great initiative was to show our support towards cancer awareness. At Guvon Hotels & Spas and Glenburn Lodge in particulare we pride ourselves in being actively involved in community projects throughout the year and by being involved in The Pink Trees for Pauline project, we are honoured to highlight breast cancer and cancer awareness in  general.” says Brenda Dooge, Group PR Manager for Guvon Hotels & Spas. Dooge further said that they are encouraging everyone in the community to get involved and to help make this project even bigger and better next year. Just imagine driving through Muldersdrift and the entire town was wrapped in pink!
