ard matthews & friends charity concert

Ard Matthews and Friends 2012, Arno Carstens, Ross Learmonth (Prime Circle), Dan Patlansky

The annual Ard Matthews and Friends Charity Concert will be taking place for the third year running, on Thursday 27th September 2012 at the Upper Eastside Hotel in Woodstock. The popular South African singer, Ard Matthews who is also lead singer of the acclaimed band Just Jinjer, has been at the forefront of this concert for the past 2 years along with the assistance of top events and PR company, The Little Black Book, and brings together great South African talent to raise money for a worthy cause. This year the funds raised through ticket sales will go to a trust called “We The Good People”. A charitable cause, founded by Ard along with two other trustees, Alistair Hargreaves (Springbok/Sharks Lock) and Sean Temple (owner of Flux Motion Kettle Bell Gym). The simple rule of this organization is “trust” and they hope to gain the trust of the public when it comes to the appropriation of charitable efforts. The charity aims to educate the public about the importance of giving back to others no matter how busy they get, and to allow 100% transparency when it comes to the distribution of the funds. It will also be facilitated by one of the world’s top law firms, Norton Rose, as part of their pro-bono social investment.

This year’s line up will not disappoint and will include Ross Learmonth, lead singer of Prime Circle, Arno Carstens, blues sensation Dan Patlansky, and of course front man, Ard Matthews. There will also be a short and fun auction taking place, handled by the well known Ariella Kuper from Clear Asset Auctions.

Tickets will be available through Webtickets at R150 each.
