Donate a gift to a child in need

THERE are two homes in our community that look after children in need.

Khayalami was established in 2004 with the purchase of the old stock yards, which were converted into a home for orphaned children. Over 13 years, extensions have been made when large donations are received. Today, Khayalami accommodates 54 children with foster mothers. The aim of the organisation is to create a safe and loving environment for children.

The Greytown Children’s Home this week celebrates its 98th birthday (see report on page 3). The home started with six children in 1919 and over the years, the numbers have increased with now 154 youngsters being cared for. Christmas is coming and these homes would be delighted if you could help them by donating R150 towards a gift for a child.

This is the fourth year we are collecting money for presents. If you would like to contribute towards this collection, please contact Louise Yeadon on 083 308 1732 to make a donation. You can make a difference in someone’s life.

Chairman of Wembley School, Michael Yeadon has made a pledge to double the contributions made from Wembley College. Join us in this drive to ensure that all children in these homes feel special, and remembered on Christmas day. Some pupils at Wembley have offered to wrap the gifts this year.
