“The SAFT fund administered by Nedbank has been fantastic. The co-ordinating team are to be commended for their easy-to- complete application form and prompt processing. Our application took less than a week until first payout last week,” – Business Day article 16 April, “UIF urged to disburse Covid-19 funds”.
We are very pleased that the Chavonnes Battery Team are all healthy and on the SAFT Fund until July whilst we are working via email building on our plans that were interrupted. We are about to install CAPS curriculum activities for Grade 4 learners which market surveys with parents currently homeschooling say will be a most welcome activity to bring their children to the Museum for a fun and educational affordable family outing. Once the schools are back and doing excursions, we will honor those that were forced to postpone and those that have booked in advance. We are also looking at offering LIVE Virtual Tours of the Museum. (Pending securing strong enough wifi) Our listings on AirBnB Experiences and Trip Advisor are both very popular, and with our target audience now home bound, we believe they will enjoy interacting with our guides via Zoom, Skype and Hangouts until such a time that they can travel again.
