The editorial and advertising teams of People’s Post played their part in honouring Madiba’s legacy on Saturday 16 July when they spent their 67 minutes for Mandela at Patricia’s Home of Hope in Vrygrond.

The team made the day special for each of the 13 foster children with a “shoebox” filled with tasty treats, toiletries, a blanket and a toy as well as a some sweet treats for the women who take care of them.

Cash and grocery donations were also handed over to the home.

People's Post and Eniwe Children's Fund thanks the following suppliers for their contributions to this project: Vangate Mall, LOck Sole, MacDonalds, Specs for Africa Optometrists and Play Sport 4 Life.
