Donations and Fundraisers

Debit Donations & Fundraisers

The OPRA has decided to initiate a Debit Order System, for those Old Port Rexians who would like to make a contribution to OPRA. These funds together with other monies received will be used to assist the school with various projects.  I would like to recommend an amount of R100.00 per month; this amount should not affect the pocket that much.

 Please download the “OPRA Debit Order Instruction Form ” and return the completed debit order form to John Acton on e-mail – This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you would rather give a once off donation, this can also be done by depositing your donation directly into the Old Port Rexian banking account:

Account Holder: Old Port Rexian Association
Bank: ABSA
Branch: Vincent Park
Branch Code: 632005
Account Number: 9221182755

Please indicate your name (reference) on the deposit slip / transfer. It would also be appreciated if you could notify myself and John Acton should you make any such deposits / transfers.

We would like to thank you in advance should you be able to support this initiative.  We do realize that there are Old Port Rexians who cannot make donations due to financial constraints.

We are also looking at various Fund Raising events and encourage you to support these.

Our first big fund raising event was held on Thursday, 24th September 2009.  We hosted Centre Stage performing the “Glory Days” Music from the 80’s.

It was a huge success with close to a sell out of all available seats at the Guild Theatre.


Centre Stage, themselves said we were among the best audiences they have experienced.


Any other fund raising ideas you may have would be appreciated. 
Kindly contact me telephonically or via e-mail.

“We need to be focused and united in our efforts and for this to be successful we need the support of all Old Port Rexians”
