The Rotary Club of Uitenhage South is appealing to the more fortunate in the community to make Christmas time a little bit brighter for 250 less fortunate children.

As from last Friday, between the hours of 18:00 and 19:30 on weekdays and between 10:30 and 13:30 on Saturdays and Sundays the Club will be manning a Tree of Joy table at the entrance of Levyvale SuperSpar.

“The idea is for the public to come forward and purchase a pre-packaged gift which the Rotary Club will deliver to one of seven non-profit welfare organisations in the community,” said Rotarian Alan Reynolds, Project Convener of the Tree of Joy in Uitenhage.

“The names of 250 children have been given by the respective charities to the Rotary Club of Uitenhage South who will allocate a gift to the name on the card and deliver the gift to the lucky child by early December.”

Each gift costs only R60.

“By buying a gift you will indeed make some child very happy during this festive season.

“Please look out for the Rotarians in the store wearing their distinctive Rotary shirts and help make this Christmas a time of joyous giving by supporting this worthwhile cause,” said Reynolds.
