Members of the Cape Town branch of the Liverpool Supporters Club visited Ithemba Labantwana Children’s Centre in Makhaza, Khayelitsha for Mandela Day on Saturday 22 July.

Having partnered with the centre for the last two years, some of the club members visited the centre to do a handover of items received from the members, community and corporate sponsorships.

Donations included non-perishable food items, clothing, school uniforms, party packs and toys.

As part of the initiative, the Foschini Group sponsored R5000, Candy’s Party Land sponsored party packets, Cachet International sponsored stationery items and Premium Sports Bar sponsored R7000.

Ithemba Labantwana is a foster centre of safety for orphaned children and children whose parents are substance abusers.

Ntombi Majaqulana and her husband Joseph are the parents of the home and because of limited funding available to them and their monthly needs, it is the continuous aim of the club to show them that they will “never walk alone”.

Deputy chairperson Carle Lenting says: “It was fantastic spending the day with all the children. As a club, our aim is to support our beloved football club while making a small difference in the lives of those less fortunate.”

V To donate, call Carle Lenting on 082 310 3159 or drop items off at Premium Sports Bar. To join the club email nicbergsma@gmail.com for the registration process.
