THE challenge is on – Oosterland Child and Youth Care Centre in Despatch – urgently needs to upgrade its security fence at an estimated cost of R150 000. High Risk Protection Services donated R5 000 towards the project and now challenges other businesses also to contribute.
Silvano Recchia, director of High-Risk Protection Services, is well-known for assisting non-profit organizations.
Annelie Morton, fundraiser at Oosterland CYCC said Recchia contacted the Centre to find out how he could be of assistance. “After I informed him about the project to replace the security fence, he came up with the idea not only to donate R5 000, but also challenge other businesses to do the same or even top his donation,” said Morton.
