The Rotary Club of Uitenhage South, is once again bringing its “Tree of Joy” project to Levyvale Superspar in Uitenhage.

In terms of the project, a specially wrapped gift can be purchased which will then be delivered during December to less fortunate children in the Uitenhage and Despatch areas, as well as to a home for the aged.

“The Rotary Club has identified 180 children and a group of elderly to whom these gifts will be given. Members of the public can contribute by paying for a pre-wrapped gift of only R70 and thereby ensuring the identified children and elderly, will have some joy this festive season,” said Rotarian Alan Reynolds, project leader.

The gifts will be available from Rotarians during November, who will man the project at Levyvale Superspar weekdays from 18:00 to 19:30 and over weekends from 10:30 to 13:30.

“The late President of SA, Nelson Mandela, said ‘the true character of society is revealed in how it treats its children’.

“This is an opportunity as a community to bring a smile and happiness to a group of less fortunate children and elderly and is one of the highlights of the Rotary year.

“The delight and joy one sees on the children’s faces, is a reward that never fades,” said Reynolds.
