LifeLine plan to host an art auction to raise much-needed funding for their operational costs as the lockdown all but wiped them out; they ask artists and bidders alike to support the cause.


Cape Town, South Africa (18 November 2020) – LifeLine Western Cape has partnered with Noordhoek Auctioneers to bring you a virtual art auction just in time for the festive season. The Covid19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns caused major funding dilemmas for the free counselling service that has been a literal lifeline to so many in the Western Cape for more than 50 years.

The auction, which will go live on Tuesday 01 December 2020, is currently calling for local artists to submit their works for this cause – all styles and genres are welcome. The auction will be live and open to bidding from 01 December 2020 until 9 pm on Tuesday 15 December 2020, with 20% of all sales going directly to LifeLine Western Cape to help them continue offering their very much needed free counselling services.

Being Brave can be Lonely.

At LifeLine Western Cape, they believe that the way in which people function in everyday life is to a large extent dependent on the quality of their relationships, be they family, social, business or community. They promote emotional wellness by focussing on self-awareness and the power of, often forgotten, inner resources.

LifeLine’s highly trained and skilled counsellors have all taken a pledge of confidentiality. They offer an ear to listen, providing support through all of life’s transitions, offering the first step towards healing.

LifeLine Western Cape believes everyone has the right to be heard!
