On Saturday 15 November, we hosted a group of 50 overwhelmed children, who did not know what to expect when they arrived at Clearwater Mall.
The outing was kept a secret by their care givers, who informed us that this was the first time the children had ever been given an opportunity to choose their own new clothes. The little ones had great fun picking out their outfits with the help of our celebrity shoppers, Kerry McKenzie (McGregor) Litha Bam, Lorna Maseko, Stacey Holland, Brian Mitchell and Flo Simba, who gave up a few hours of their time to help brighten children’s day.
Once everything was rung up, we went to Nandos Roodebasin, where Thabani, Thandi and their staff were eagerly awaiting our arrival. The restaurant was set up for a PARTY with a gift pack for each child, balloons and juices. Our team of celebrities and volunteers quickly moved into the kitchen to close boxes and deliver food to every child, before indulging in the delicious platters prepared for the adults.
