The annual Ard Matthews and Friends Charity Concert 2013

Ard Matthews and Friends 2013 (by Denzil Jacobs)

The annual Ard Matthews and Friends Charity Concert will be taking place for the fourth year running on Thursday 29 August 2013. The concert will be taking place at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Cape Town Upper Eastside 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 3 years along with the assistance of top events and PR company, The Little Black Book. The annual charity concert brings together great South African talent to raise money for a worthy cause.

The line up this year include Ard Matthews, Albert Frost, James Stewart & Barry van Zyl, Louise Day, Dan Patlansky, Macstanley, White Collar Club, Schalk Burger SNR, DJ Dino Moran, DJ Gary Cool and Dan Nicholl as host for the night.

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.
