Lighthouse Stimulation Centre’s second fundraiser a success

We hoped to raise between R50 000 and R60 000 but instead raised R14 140 and we are grateful.

The Lighthouse Stimulation Centre held its second fundraiser on February 25 in Linmeyer to raise funds for purchasing a home.

The event’s organiser, Terry Roux said their goal is to purchase a space for their 30 children.

“We are based on council property and want the Lighthouse to be both a school and a home. Some of the residents have nowhere to go due to the death of a loved one. “We are looking for a large home with five to six rooms and a large stand for children’s outdoor sports.

“With our first fundraiser, we raised approximately R24 000 and the principal of the school hoped to raise as much as possible with the second one. We received donated hampers and paintings from the Linmeyer and Hill communities, which we auctioned.

“We hoped to raise between R50 000 and R60 000, but instead raised R14 140. However, we are grateful.
“We hosted 50 adults and 20 children who could all take part in the fun such as painting, photo booth, egg racing and hampers. The event was not only a fundraiser but also a family affair.

“We would also like to thank the owner of the South African Entertainment Group, Sonet Shields, for doing her entertainment show for free. She is one of those who contributed to the success of the day,” said Roux.
