DJ Rob Forbes and some of his fans got down and dirty to help add some colour to the lives of the youth at Yenzani Children's Home

5FM DJ Rob Forbes in association with Plascon spent his Saturday, earlier this month adding a splash of colour and beauty to the Yenzani Children's Home in in Noordwyk, near Midrand.

But convinced that he would get as many people involved as possible, the DJ used his social status to get the ball and paint brushes rolling.

Involving a number of his fans he recruited using social media, he rolled up his sleeves and painted the home, a youth center that provides love, care and shelter for children who need it the most.

"I was moved by the response I received from my fans when I reached out for help to paint the home," says Forbes. "We all had a great time helping Yenzani, which is doing some inspiring work to create a bright future for children with difficult pasts."

Yenzani's Founder, Sanne Mirk adds: "A big thank you to Rob and Plascon for brightening our home with these wonderful colours. The newly painted walls make the home a more cheerful place to be and will give our children inspiration every day."

Here are some fun pics of the happenings and a big pat on the back for Mr Forbes and his fans!
