Students' Appeal

15 February 2007 | Story by Daniella Pollock

Esther Bwambale celebrates a hard-earned sale.

Whether Daniel Craig would appreciate Saxxy Royale haute couture is questionable.

But then again, Sax Appeal Day - this year's theme was James Bond, for those who didn't get the Daniel Craig reference - is not about Paris high fashion. It's all a bit tongue in cheek.

This annual student magazine and its vendors might cause a giggly twitch, but the topics are closer to home than we would like to admit. Like the 2010 Soccer World Cup, our politicians' shenanigans and terrorism.

So too, the purpose it serves. It's all in the name of charity.

Organisers aim to raise R600 000, says Tim Shier, head of operations at RAG, the fund-raising arm of Students' Health and Welfare Centres Organisation (SHAWCO) at UCT.

The proceeds from Sax Appeal go straight to SHAWCO.

Together about 2 500 students sold a whopping 34 000 copies on the morning of 15 February.

The remaining 11 000 copies will be sold in Pick 'n Pays and at tourist spots.
