All systems go for Christmas lunch

2018-11-28 06:03

IT’S all systems go for the Christmas lunch for Ward 34’s disadvantaged and underprivileged children this December 8 at 8 Redwood Cresent, Panorama Gardens, according to community activist and organiser, Jerry Barnes.

“I am very grateful and would like to thank one of the local churches from Northdale that heard my plea after reading it in the local newspaper. I just cannot wait to see the smiles from those children on the day,” said Barnes, who added that this was all made possible thanks to good Samaritans.

Barnes confirmed that he has had new partners come on board in a major way stating that this year for the first time ever, children will be walking away with a toy on the day.

“Not only are we providing them with meals, this year each and every child in attendance will receive a toy all thanks to our sponsors,” said Barnes.

Approximately 150 children are expected to turn out for the Christmas lunch from areas such as Panorama, Eastwood and Cinderella Park.

Appealing once more to the community, Barnes has asked the community for one more donation in the form of a jumping castle.

“If we can just get one more community member to sponsor a jumping castle for our children, that would be great.

“As parents our aim is to spend quality time with these children to ensure that they experience passion and caring spirits from us all,” said Barnes.

For more information, Barnes can be contacted on 083 521 9553, or jerryb.barnes228@gmail.com and can also be reached at 8 Redwood Crescent, Panorama Gardens.
