A ball to play with, an umbrella for those rainy days, a doll to dress up or a big chocolate to enjoy - help make the Christmas dreams of over 200 children come true this December.

After a very successful Christmas project last year, the Kouga Express is once again appealing to residents to help warm the hearts of less fortunate children in the community.

This year the Kouga Express, in conjunction with Pick `n Pay and Fountains Mall, will be collecting gifts for over 200 pupils from Mondplaas Primary School in Jeffreys Bay, the Rainbow Centre in Humansdorp and Zuuranys Primary School in Kareedouw.

The Kouga Express relies on the generosity of the community to satisfy the demand for presents. Without the support of local residents this appeal will fail.

Each learner wrote his or her wish onto a special Christmas “wish card”, with their name and age.

These cards are displayed on the Christmas tree in the forecourt at Pick `n Pay in Fountains Mall.

Residents are able to select the wish card or cards that appeal to them and buy the gifts written on the cards. Residents can either wrap the presents themselves, or have them wrapped by the Kouga Express team.

The following information must be clearly marked on the present:

  • Name of school
  • Name and surname of pupil
  • Age of pupil
  • Grade of pupil.

Each card is unique to a deserving child. If a card is taken and not returned, that specific pupil could miss out on a present for Christmas.

Presents can be dropped off at either the Kouga Express office at 75 Da Gama Road in Jeffreys Bay or at Pick `n Pay. All the presents must be returned by November 21. The presents will be handed out to the pupils at a special Christmas party at their respective schools.
