A TEAM at Wakefields Ballito, and their manager Cindy Bogan, took to the hills of Cottonlands near Verulam to give a helping hand in the makeover of one of the houses at LIV Village.

Armed with paint, brushes, rollers and a whole lot of enthusiasm, they arrived at the village in a bakkie at 9am to get stuck in and make life for a family in the village a little happier.

Starting in one house, the men got down and dirty and scraped down showers and walls that desperately needed painting.

In the meantime, the ladies worked at another house, washing down outside walls before painting the outside from floor to roof. They were then joined by the men to complete the job.

The village is such an uplifting place to work as everyone there has such a positive attitude and grateful hearts. With radios all tuned in to Christian stations, the whole vibe of the village is peaceful, friendly and positive.

“The work that is being done there by Tanya and her team is absolutely amazing, and doing an event like this really makes one realise that we are so blessed in our situations, and being able to assist the less fortunate is one of the most rewarding things one can do in life, however small it may seem,” said a representative from Wakefields. - Supplied
