About the John Whiffen Golden City Memorial Trust
John Whiffen died tragically in a building accident 2004, at the age of 48. John had a passion for life and one of the activities closest to his heart was the work he did through Toastmasters for people with physical and mental disabilities. At the time of his death, John was the President of Golden City Toastmasters Johannesburg, based at St Giles in Kensington.

This club was established to create opportunities for the physically and mentally challenged to achieve personal growth and integrate more fully with society through the medium and support of able-bodied Toastmasters in South Africa. As a tribute to John, his family has established the John Whiffen Golden City Memorial Trust (JWGCMT). The Trust is committed to promoting and supporting personal growth for physically and mentally challenged individuals and groups in South African society.

To this end, the Trust has now provided financial and moral support to the continued growth of the Golden City Toastmasters Club in Johannesburg, the Madiba Bay Golden City Johannesburg Club in Port Elizabeth, and physically challenged members from other Toastmasters Clubs.

The John Whiffen Golden City Memorial Trust is a registered Not For Profit Organisation—NPO 47-931

About tuesday’s child
When Lois was declared blind in Durban in 1992, the first thing she did was to join a rock band. When she moved to Cape Town, she met Craig, and it was not long before they were performing a mixture of original and cover music throughout Cape Town, mostly under the name "tuesday’s child". The music varied from a quite acoustic duo, through to a full four-piece rock band, with Mike on lead guitar, and Richard on drums. Tuesday’s child have been played on both national and international radio, and one of their tracks even reached #1 on the SA Rock Digest music charts in 2002. Tracks can be downloaded for free off the band’s website – www.tuesdayschild.co.za
