Nashua Mandela Day collection supports local NGOs in changing lives
It’s always been core to Nashua’s vision and mission to support South African children’s organisations uplifting communities through the Nashua Children’s Charity Foundation (NCCF) – and Mandela Day is no exception. As for the past eight years, Nashua’s Head Office in Woodmead was transformed into a donation centre for Mandela Day (18 July). Various charities supported by the NCCF gathered to celebrate the auspicious occasion and collect much-needed goods for the underprivileged.
The event was co-ordinated by the foundation’s dedicated director, Helen Fraser. It was well-attended, with celebrities such as Garnett Kruger, Helen Desbois, Litha Bam, Thabo September, Mark Fish, Andre Nel and Xolani Gwala showing their support.
Famed local singer Danny K generously donated R10 000-worth of building materials from Builders to the NCCF. This donation will be used for renovations at Caroline’s Care Safe Home, for the replacement of rain-damaged ceilings, as well as damp-proofing and painting. The much-overdue and anticipated renovations commenced on Mandela Day.
The NCCF aims to honour and celebrate the legacy of Nelson Mandela in hosting this annual event – and with their ongoing work with charities around South Africa – to pay homage to the ultimate icon of selflessness.
