It began on Wednesday 14th when Helen Fraser was able to talk about the NCCF plans for Mandela Day on Radio 702. Thereafter she received a call from Fairways Primary School to say that their pupils were icing and decorating 500 Marie biscuits to give to our charities. They also donated clothing and balls. Generous Nashua staff members also donated books, DVDs and stationery items for the homes. Just Fun Toys gave us five packed boxes and Pick ‘n Pay Woodmead gave us party treats, cakes, ice cream cones, cup cakes and bags of oranges. Makro in Woodmead upped our monthly shopping discount by a further 1% for all the purchases that we made for Mandela Day. And so the fun began on Sunday 18th in honour of a great man.
