Community members from Constantia and surrounds came out in droves to attend the Family Fun Day, a fundraising event held on Sunday, 28 July, at Alphen Veterinary Hospital on Constantia Main Road.

“The community came out in support of Michelle Tito, the owner of Moo Land Pre-school in Diep River. The weather was perfect and the kids had a blast. A big thank you to everyone who helped make this day so special,” said Michelle Johanson, one of a group of moms from the southern suburbs (“Moms helping mom”, People’s Post, 23 July 2019) who used the BackaBuddy campaign as a platform to raise funds.

Money raised will go towards employing an interim teacher at the pre-school while Michelle recovers from a severe stroke that she suffered in April this year. Although the exact amount of money raised could not be disclosed by the time of going to print, Johanson said they were excited by the result.

The exposure in People’s Post had another surprising outcome. “A reader, who was touched by the story, donated a walker to Michelle.”
