Charity: Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory


Alta Brown (47) is an events and projects manager, who first stumbled upon charitable work through her interest in events and Harley Davidsons. Alta has chosen the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory at the Nelson Mandela Foundation as her non-profit organisation (NPO). She discovered the organisation when she was managing the inaugural ‘Bikers for Mandela Day’ national ride which relied heavily on Alta’s consummate professionalism as an events coordinator. Alta hopes to make South Africans realise that they should contribute their time and skills in order to help build Nelson Mandela’s envisioned new nation.
