SEEDLINGS Montessori Crèche, Clarendon School, Hilton College and Epworth opened up their hearts and gave with generosity and kindness.

Seedlings Montessori Crèche collected money­ via their Water Wednesdays and their Friday Fresh Produce markets. They also visited Nqoba Crèche and played with the children for a morning and took them treats.

At the end of term they hosted a purple party where each child wore something purple to school and they did purple activities to celebrate their new relationship with Thandanani and 4kids.

Each child was also asked to bring an item of clothing, a book or a toy, which they would share with the Nqoba crèche children.

Clarendon Primary also collected money and joined in a field visit to one of the care-giver’s homes where they took sweets and toys to neighbourhood children.

They spent the afternoon playing games, sharing sweets and making new friends. During June and July they collected tinned food and blankets to help during the winter months.

The boys of Hilton College have been doing fantastic work. The pupils of Churchill House collected two big boxes clothes and donated more than R2 000 to Thandanani and 4kids.

Epworth School joined in again this year in our Crèche Make-over project and were joined by Deloitte­’s and African Exposure, which headed the development.

The crèche chosen this year was Inkululeko Pre-Primary. The girls did a marvellous job digging holes, scraping paint, picking up rubbish and putting jungle gyms back together.

St John’s had fun and got spotted in the
#getspotted4kids campaign earlier this year with The Witness newspaper. They also knitted blankets, which have gone to families in need.

The Merchiston After-Care ladies knitted scarves and beanies, which are needed for winter.

If you are part of a school or know of a school that would like to get involved, contact Jess McTaggart on 072 229 9406 or email
