About

Lighthouse2Lighthouse ladies' (NPO 169-860) is a non-profit organisation focused on raising funds for charities in the Overstrand community.

We have raised just over R5million since 2006 and, in doing so, helped more than 20 charities in our community.


The proceeds of the Practice Walks will be distributed amongst the 9 beneficiaries that applied for funding for 2022 - this includes Izibusiso, Creative Skills Factory, Grootbos Foundation, Handevat Music (Kleinmond), Kleinmond Animal Welfare Society, Hawston Health and Welfare Centre, Panthera Africa (Stanford), Pebbles Project and Hermanus Waldorf School.


Money cannot be raised without the support of our walkers – albeit the registered Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse Ladies or family or friends or community members. Your small contribution will make a big difference to the communities impacted by the charities we support in the Overstrand.
