Goldfish show their support to help heal seriously and injured children!

GoldFish have partnered with The Children’s Hospital Trust in full support of their latest fundraising campaign!


Cape Town, South Africa – GoldFish, the electronic duo originating from Cape Town, South Africa, consisting of Dominic Peters and David Poole have partnered with The Children’s Hospital Trust, in full support of their latest fundraising campaign, Leave Your Mark On Life, to help raise R150 million for the Red Cross WarMemorial Children’s Hospital.

The Children’s Hospital Trust was established in 1994 to fundraise for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital and in 2011 expanded its reach to fundraise for paediatric healthcare in the Western Cape and beyond. Since 1994, The Trust has proudly assisted the Hospital to upgrade its buildings and equipment and to develop its professional staff. 100% of all donations go directly to the Hospital and prioritised paediatric healthcare needs, and not a single cent is spent on administration costs. The Trust is a non-profit organisation that relies on the benevolence of donors to realise its aims and objectives. It enjoys a record of sound financial administration and good governance, but while it has raised funds to address many pressing needs, much has yet to be done.

GoldFish have generously donated their track Hold Your Kite to the campaign as well as all the royalties they have received in South Africa since this song was released.

This dynamic duo is globally known for creating dance music containing elements of house, pop, jazz and African music have joined the Trust as global Ambassadors. The usage of the ever so popular track, Hold Your Kite was kindly offered royalty-free by GoldFish, Sorana, Armada Music and Sony Music Africa and currently features in the Trust’s latest video and TV advert.

“We are extremely grateful to Goldfish for this unique new partnership – which is an active expression of Dominic and David’s values and will significantly help raise funds for our Leave your Mark on Life campaign.” Says Trust CEO, LouiseDriver.

After seven years living between Cape Town and Ibiza, Dominic and David have settled in San Diego in the USA and are thrilled to be giving back to their home country, “Everyone can help, and every donation counts towards helping the most vulnerable and future of our society, our seriously ill and injured children,” urges the duo.

To help ensure that every child has access to quality, life-saving healthcare, join GoldFish, donate to The Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, contribute to the future of Africa and Leave Your Mark on Life
