Appeal for sponsors

2016-07-14 06:00

THE Tongaat Diwali Celebration Committee is spreading cheer once again and aims to continue their 400 food hamper drive after the success of last year’s campaign.

The organisation’s main objectives are to provide community service – irrespective of race, religion and colour, language or political affiliation.

Each hamper will contain 2kg rice, 2.5kg white sugar, 2.5kg cake flour, 2 litre cooking oil – these are the main items that a family needs. The total cost per hamper is R120. The aim is to distribute 400 hampers which costs R48 000.

For this vision to materialise, the organisation is appealing for assistance. Chairperson Prem Misthry said: “Over the years we have made every effort to collect funds to enable us to provide for those in need. With the passing of the years, this becomes more difficult. The present state of the economy and retrenchments are some of the reasons for this.

“It would be appreciated if the public could sponsor R1200 as this will being joy to 10 needy families during Diwali.”

The hampers will be packed and delivered to the clubs from Golden Sun Supermarket on 26 October at 9am.
