Heroine of the Month – Bev Murray

Let’s take a minute to get to know Bev!


Bev is the proud owner of Bev’s Beauty & Wellness, situated at 3 Tetford Circle, Hirsch’s, Umhlanga.
It can be confirmed that Bev doesn’t only spend her hours taking care of her customers inner and outer beauty, but she extends this innate passion for wellbeing to her family, friends and the UWA committee members. If you peruse her Facebook page, you will notice that most of the posts are based on promoting and supporting other individuals and local businesses!
As part of the UWA organisation and committee for many years, she volunteers her time willingly and graciously and takes on every challenge with courage and positivity. Ready to lend her ear to listen, her shoulder to lean on, share advice and knowledge, all with a smile and twinkle in her eye.
After meeting Bev for the first time, you will walk away feeling as though you’ve either made a friend for life or have known her for a lifetime as her warm, welcoming, loving, and supportive nature is instantly felt and extended naturally and effortlessly.
So taking ‘that minute’ to get to know Bev will be time well spent as you get to learn that her deep interest in the wellbeing of others is her motto and at the forefront of her life.
Bev, our positive, patient, stylish, sincere, fun, caring friend, is your best cheerleader, team player, supporter in business and life, and a reliable, loyal, honest, and selfless friend.
She will take you under her wing and make you know that you are loved!

Our chosen heroine of the month, Bev, we are grateful for you, and we celebrate and salute you! May all the good vibes you give out be returned to you tenfold!

We are knitting 1000 beanies for the Open Door Crisis Care Centre, from newborns to adults – all ages and sizes.

Help us keep South Africa warm and make a difference by joining our sisterhood and kintting, crocheting and contributing to this very worthy project to help the Open Door.

Cheyenne Pinn Heroine
Cheyénne Pinn

Congratulations to Danville Diamond Cheyénne (14 years old), who in December and January collected and put together appreciation packs for frontline workers to show how much they are appreciated.
Since starting Cheyénne has prepared 550 appreciation packs with 400 of these having already been delivered to various frontline workers. These packs contain items like Powerade, Energade, Water, Biscuits, Chocolate and Tea and Coffee Sachets depending on the donations received from the local community.
Cheyénne has inspired numerous people with her “Super Hero Packs”, with a lady messaging that it had inspired her Mom, from Greytown, to do the same for the nurses at the clinics she is involved with.
Cheyénne also received a voice note saying a Pretoria Lieutenant Colonel from the Police Airwing had seen a picture on social media of a “Super Hero” pack and was so impressed a teenager was behind the kindness to the frontline workers that he decided they wanted to do the same in Pretoria.
Due to the great response, she has had, Cheyénne will be continuing with this initiative even though the school holidays are now over.

If you would like to get involved or donate items, contact Cheyénne’s mother (Gwynn) on 082 338 5721

an exceptional UWA Heroine, well done Debbie Becker from Bernina.

Debbie Becker decided to stitch a silver lining around this shadow and made a call to ask members of the public to sew face masks for charity.
