A warm welcome to Sherlin Barends and Anbann Chetti

This month we welcome Sherlin Barends as our Patron.  Sherlin will help raise awareness about the importance of mental health, specifically in school communities. Both of Sherlin’s parents are educators at two of our partner schools and Sherlin attended a primary and high school which now have CK offices.  Sherlin speaks openly about her own mental health journey and has been instrumental in destigmatising anxiety and mental health issues.  We have not had a Patron before, so this is a historic moment for us.

We also welcome Anbann Chetti who joins our board of directors. Anbann is an experienced finance executive in the financial services industry being uniquely fortunate to have worked in CIB, Wealth and Retail banking in five South African banks. He is currently the Retail Bank Financial Head at Capitec.  Anbann has a heart for community and he looks forward to rolling up his sleeves and making a contribution.

Our patron, board members and directors are all unpaid volunteers who freely give of their time and expertise, for the sake of our children.
