September 2012

The Fasset Annual Function 2012 event was a great success! Held at the Randpark Golf Club in Randburg, Gauteng, the breakfast event showcased just how Fasset is making the future count through "skills at work."  

Another exciting event held this month, as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, was the Refalletse Primary School Fundraising event. Fasset and the ACCA teamed up to host a fun-day for the community in Orange Farm in order to raise funds for school. You can look forward to seeing some of the photos from the events in the next issue of e-Facts. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all who attended as well as all those who were involved, in making theses events such successful and memorable ones.

We would also like to alert you to our first Annual Integrated Report which will be available on our website after tabling in parliament, scheduled for end September 2012.
