Welfare president thanks sponsors for making charity fair a success

2017-05-04 06:00

WITH limited financial support from the Department of Social Development, welfare agencies around the country are forced to engage in fund-raising drives all the time so that operational costs can be met every month, which in turn ensures the best in terms of the delivery of welfare services offered to our community.

The charity fair is the biggest fund-raising event hosted by the Tongaat Child Welfare. The success of this event depends on a whole host of factors. Living in the present economic times is financially challenging to both the ordinary householder and business houses.

Yet the Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society is fortunate to still enjoy the benevolence of sponsorships and donations in these trying times. In this regard I want to, on behalf of the society and our beneficiaries, say a big thank you to our major sponsors, Tongaat Hulett,
Victoria Medi-Clinic and Rightback Systems and all other sponsors for their kind generosity.

Our sincere thanks and appreciation to Checkout for the children’s carnival where 2 000 goodie bags and T-shirts were handed out to children. May you always be blessed with good fortune in all your future endeavours.

The Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society also enjoys tremendous support and assistance from religious institutions, sister organisations, civic associations and the general community at large.

For this we are forever grateful. A big thank you to all our service providers on the fairgrounds, these include SAPS, Metro police, the fire department, Victoria Medi-Clinic and IPSS.

The role played by our volunteers especially at this time is always awe-inspiring and unbelievable. These are people who sacrifice many hours away from home to make sure that all is well before the fair.

To you our dedicated volunteers a big thank you. Finally, I would like to thank you, the community, who always come in your large numbers not only to have fun at the fair, but also to support a worthy cause.
