Randfontein Publicity Association (RPA) member, Magriet van der Hoven, owner of Elite Needle Craft in Randfontein, decided that she wanted to bring a little joy to needy kids this Christmas.
She approached Joy Hamann at the RPA, to see who she could help as she wanted to knit teddy bears for the kids. Joy suggested the creche that is run by Carryou Ministry at the Elandsfontein Drop In Centre.
While Magriet set about making the bears, the RPA decided it would like to help by sponsoring a Christmas party for the children and the care-givers at the Drop In Centre. Another RPA member, Swanepoel Boekhouers, also made a substantial cash donation. Cakes, snacks and party packs for the kids were bought and last week the party was held, much to the delight of the kids.
Their smiles said it all and there were whoops of joy as they hugged their new teddy bears.
"We are so grateful to be blessed by such kind and generous people," says Brenda, Naholo, Programme Manager at the Elandsvlei Drop In Centre.
