A farewell braai was held under the trees at Rand Aid’s head office on May 19.

Haslehurst joined Rand Aid at the beginning of 1989 as a clerk of works (workshop manager).

Back then, only Wedge Gardens and Bramley House were in existence.

Haslehurst has seen Rand Aid grow into the large organisation that it is today, comprising four retirement villages, two frail care centres, a treatment centre for people with substance abuse problems and a home for the deaf.

It also has support services, including a central laundry, workshop and a catering division.

“Clive was involved in a variety of projects over the years,” said CEO Rae Brown.

In 2001, he was promoted to head office as property manager and continued to run the workshops as well as preparing maintenance budgets.

In 2006, he was promoted to utility and insurance administrator.

“His duties included preparing and providing Rand Aid’s brokers with renewal terms at the commencement of each financial year, keeping track of any new assets purchased and adding to the insurance portfolio, processing and handling insurance claims and keeping a register and managing all Rand Aid vehicles,” said Brown.

“I am proud to have been associated with Rand Aid and trust the organisation will continue to go from strength to strength,” said Haslehurst.

Wim Pieterse, Rand Aid’s GM of Finance, hands over a token of appreciation to Clive Haslehurst, who retired after 28 years.
