Thank you for Deepavali donations

2016-11-23 06:00

THE Pietermaritzburg Deepavali Cheer Society wishes to extend its thanks to the numerous donors who made possible the distribution of 1 200 hampers to indigent families over the Deepavali celebrations in October. Thanks must be extended to the various professional people, individual donors and well wishers who gave unstintingly towards this worthy cause.

Our thanks also go to the many school principals, who with their staff, gave generously to help our endeavours. Special thanks must be accorded to Dada’s Spice Works and to Alliance Milling who brought prices down to the barest minimum to ensure well-filled hampers to bring cheer to those who would otherwise have not been able to celebrate joyfully.

Special mention must be made of the generosity of Willowton Oil and Cake Mills, which helped fill the hampers with household items of daily use.

To The Gift of the Givers, which added beneficial items to make our hampers well worth their while an very sincere thank you.

We also thank Fever as well as Hindvani for having brought attention of our need for donors to the public. And last but not least our devoted volunteers who helped throughout to ensure success of our venture.

We salute you.
