Steeling themselves

Many of the youths were eager to learn how to play and be part of a steel band. Here co-ordinator David Wickham, middle, and the young people take a break during one of their stints.

Youngsters who are part of the Boys to Real Men programme in Hanover Park, were entertained and given an option to sign up with the Steelband Project Western Cape, on Saturday June 23 at the area’s civic centre. The Steelband Project co-ordinator, David Wickham, and his team, first gave a demonstration before the Hanover Park youth were invited to learn the skill. The Boys to Real Men project is a partnership with the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Urban Regeneration Programme (MURP) and non-profit organisation, She-Chem.
