Volunteers arrive from abroad

Gareth is one of 3 volunteers from the UK who will be with us for the next 3 months.  They were sent to us by 'Coaching For Hope' and will be spending afternoons with the children, teaching soccer skills.

Rayner (2nd from right) is a medical student from Canada.  She and Trevor Busby are running a Holiday program for the children this week during the school term holiday.

We are so thankful to these kind-hearted people!

Picture Perfect!

Couldn't resist taking this pic on my way to the celebrations on Saturday.  The colours all around the garden are breath-taking!

Garden Birthday

Just in time, the fence around the Court was finished the day before the Birthday.

Residents, children and a few UK volunteers gathered to listen to the speeches, on an overcast and windy day - Saturday, 1 October.

Mr. Morkel, ex-Councillor for our area and recently retired, still took the time to pay us a visit.

Thanks to the Committee and a few caring residents, there was enough...

... to feed all the hungry little mouths!

The highlight for the children was the games afterwards.
