CASUAL Day was celebrated in Kimberley with a 5km fun walk in Galeshewe organised by the Northern Cape SAPS on Friday.

The local traffic department and the SAPS Mounted Unit took the lead, joined by members from SAPS provincial office and station members from Kimberley, Galeshewe, Roodepan and Kagisho.

SAPS provincial head for corporate communications, Brigadier Mohale Ramatseba, welcomed those present while Reverend Mathane from employee health and wellness did the prayer and devotion.

Jezelle Greef, a representative from Yonder, and several other stakeholders rendered messages of support.

The day ended with entertainment provided by the Yonder gum-boot dancers and the Northern Cape SAPS band.

Soccer matches were also played amongst the local stations at the Galeshewe soccer turf.

Casual Day is celebrated nationally throughout South Africa on the first Friday of September and this year’s theme, Time to Shine, gave all participants an opportunity to glow, as well as to raise funds by purchasing a Casual Day sticker for persons with disabilities.

Last year a record R31 million was raised and with this year being the 25th anniversary of Casual Day, it was hoped this figure would be surpassed.
