The film adaption of Jojo Moyes’ bestselling novel, Me Before You, is the tear jerking girlie flick to be featured at the Nu Metro Girl’s Night Out at GrandWest on Thursday, 30 June 2016. The romantic comedy drama stars Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin, Jenna Coleman, Charles Dance, Matthew Lewis, Ben Lloyd-Hughs and Janet McTeer.

The story centres on a young and quirky Louisa “Lou” Clark who moves from one job to the next to help her family make ends meet. Her cheerful attitude is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor, a wealthy young banker left paralysed following an accident two years earlier. His cynical outlook starts to change when Clark shows him that life is actually worth living. As their bond deepens, their lives and hearts change in ways neither of them could have imagined.

A vaccination drive forms part of City Health’s winter programme, focusing on residents who are vulnerable to infection. Read more below:

The City of Cape Town’s clinics are rounding off their flu vaccination drive as part of the Health Directorate’s winter health efforts.

City Health acquired 21 200 flu vaccinations at a cost of just over R1,2 million earlier this year. The vaccinations have been distributed in terms of the National Influenza Policy and Strategic Plan, 2015. In terms of the plan, all provinces are required to budget for annual influenza vaccinations and jointly vaccinate a specific number of people in high-risk groups. This includes people who are HIV positive, pregnant women, children and the elderly.

While it is not possible to vaccinate all clients who visit public health facilities against influenza, vaccinations are done to ensure community immunity, i.e. immunising a critical portion of a community against a contagious disease which minimises the opportunity for an outbreak, thus protecting those who are not vaccinated.

The following is an extract from a speech delivered by City of Cape Town Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille, at the Matrix Clinic graduation of 140 clients held at the Kensington Civic Centre today.

On 26 June 2012, almost exactly four years ago today, I made a commitment.

We were launching the first phase of our Substance Abuse Campaign called ‘Don’t Start, Be Smart’.

On that day, I said that we are serious about saving our youth.

We had just identified substance abuse as a priority area in our Integrated Development Plan because of the high incidence of drug and alcohol abuse in Cape Town. Continue reading

GrandWest enthusiastically pledged its support for Heart FMs 16 Days of Youth campaign which saw the radio station shutting down its broadcast studio in Green Point to undertake youth focused projects across the Western Cape.

The 16 Days for Youth journey started in Vredenburg on 1 June 2016 and ended on 16 June 2016, Youth Day. During the journey, Heart FM broadcast remotely from various locations and were part of various community projects to uplift young people in need. The initiative is a spin-off from the station’s #HeartBeats4Youth campaign which started out with motivational talks by celebrities at various schools four years ago. It has since evolved into a 16 day drive to contribute to youth upliftment in the province.
