When Alicia Rhoda of the Christine Revel Children’s Home for abused and neglected children in Athlone contacted Alfonso Stoffels from Nickay Productions in Bellville for donations, he didn’t think twice to assist.“Caregivers at creches, pre-schools or after-care centres are known for making a fuss of the children in their care and they don’t expect to be fussed over in return. Before the donations were handed over, we spoiled them with a meal, entertainment and a photoshoot,” says Stoffels.His company donated three hair clippers for the different sections at the home, fluorescent light bulbs and money for disposable nappies. “We approached some of our business associates to join in on the Mandela Day celebrations and we collectively honoured the caregivers with the meal, entertainment and photoshoot. “We made a huge fuss of them to say thank your for their contribution to the children’s well-being,” Stoffels says.The donations were handed over at different times during the year and his partners were 45 Connections, Fifth Factor, OculusIP, DotK Production, Novaoffice and Ikon.“The cash contribution for the nappy supply is ongoing. Like most NGO’s they have many challenges and need to search for donors,” says Stoffels.“We have been involved in other community projects as well. We help raise funds and support Business Against Crime Western Cape, an organisation working towards a safe and secure South Africa where people and businesses live without the threat of crime and violence,” Stoffels says.“With our intervention, our sister company DotK Productions has recently built BAC Western Cape a new website with an e-commerce donor platform to assist them in their fundraising efforts.“Nickay is a dynamic and experienced multimedia company, operating a fully digitised service across the different sectors with added services in the photography, videography and the print sector.“We are a service provider to the Sun International Group and have been afforded the opportunity to be included in GrandWest ED Programme,” he says. As part of this programme, small businesses have the support of a business coach. “Companies accessing this ED programme are compelled to ’pay it forward’, something which was already part of Nickay’s ethos. Entrepreneurship is what our country needs to grow the economy,” Stoffels says.
