Who will share the magic
of spring with a child?

Spring’s in the air! And we’re delighted that the season of ‘fun in the sun’s’ finally here!

Our boys and girls have been cooped up indoors for far too long and they’re really looking forward to warm days and outdoor fun.

But one look at their warm winter clothes and you’ll know it won’t do for the lively activity they’re planning in the months to come.

We’re sure you’ll agree that long-sleeved tracksuits are definitely not ideal for the hot summer months.

So please, will you make your online donation here and help us dress our boys and girls with ‘cool clothes’ to suit the hot and sunny days?

We also need to make sure that our young athletes have the right kit for the new season’s sports.

Your giving here will be a huge help!

If you want to see our youngsters welcome this new season with joy in their hearts please make your donation here.

The truth is your contribution will help brighten up their lives and show them that they’re cared for.

So please give as generously as you can. If enough of our friends join together we’ll be able to buy them essential toiletries like soap, body lotion and deodorant for the older boys and girls.

Thank you for caring about our children – and believing in our work.

Gifts in kind and willing volunteers are also hugely appreciated. Please click here for more information, or telephone the home on
011 435-3820.
