On Tuesday 31 July 2018, the Rotary Club of Bellville hosted an awards evening recognizing individuals in their community that have showcased excellent and selfless service. Ann Stephenson, mother of Newlands member John Stephenson, was honoured for 19 years of valuable and dedicated service to Tygerberg Hospice as a volunteer.
 
"When I retired, we told my mother that it was probably a good time for her to retire too!" said John, commenting on his mother's energy and commitment to community service.
