ILLOVO Primary recently donated R1 000 to the Kingsburgh Child and Family Welfare Society to mark their milestone anniversary in serving the needs of the less privileged and disadvantaged in the community for the past 70 years.

“The management, staff and pupils are extremely mindful of the essential service provided by the Kingsburgh Child and Family Welfare Society,” said principal Mags Moodley.

“We are mindful of the fact that this society does not receive any financial support from government, nor to the best of my knowledge, does it receive any grant-in-aid from the eThekwini Municipality. “It relies heavily on financial and other material aid from the public, which in most instances, is not forthcoming,” he said.

Moodley said the staff were receptive to managementand#039;s plea to assist the organisation financially.

“We extended this plea to our pupils, the majority of whom are drawn from indigent circumstances within a 35km radius of the school. “One attribute of the pupils and staff of Illovo Primary is their ability to open their hearts to others more deserving, and they certainly did,” he said.

“It is said generosity is giving to others what you could use yourself. By our donation, staff and pupils have led by example­. We set a target of R1 000 and once this amount was reached, we handed over our cheque to Sandra Govender, senior social worker and Janette Kruger, secretary,” Moodley said.

The organisation calls on the community to support their Money Tree fundraising drive. To date they have raised R10 210 and their aim is to raise R70 000 by the end of the year
