Fathers, in most families, are our special unsung heroes.
They rarely ever get their fair share of adulation. They are content to sit in the corner and wait in the wings.
This doesn't mean that they are never there. It just means that even when you think they are not, your dad will always be looking out for you.
Say thank you to him this Father's Day with these great outing ideas.• Father's Day at the Club:
Durban Country Club will be hosting a scrumptious brunch for all the family to enjoy. It will ease mom's task in the kitchen and will make your dad feel very special.
Who wouldn't love the idea of being treated for brunch at a country club?
When: 21 June 2009
Where: Durban Country Club, Walter Gilbert Road
Cost: Adults - R120 (Includes a special gift for dad), Kids under 12 - R 60

Do something a little different this year with your dad. Have fun and bond as a family while helping to raise funds for those less fortunate than yourselves.
The Street Child World Cup will be taking place in Durban in March 2010.
Imagine these young children being recognised for their fantastic soccer talents during one of the greatest events South Africa has ever hosted?
How can you help?

The concert started in May and runs every Thursday till 2 July.
Yes, we realise it is not a possibility to go on father's day, but who said that Father's Day celebrations are restricted to 21 June?
