The Thandanani Centre in Zandspruit received a financial boost from Trinityhouse and the Kingsway School in Randpark Ridge.

For five weeks, the schools’ Grade 8 pupils raised the funds by selling fudge, brownies and arts and crafts; and walking dogs. R225 242,95 was handed over to the children of the Thandanani Centre during Trinityhouse’s assembly.

Trinityhouse teacher Karen Cosh, who runs the project, said many corporate donations were also generated. “Corporates can still donate until the end of the year. This year the money is aimed at the running costs of the centre. In previous years we gave them a Siyaya minibus and we renovated the cottage at the centre.”

In addition some pupils visit the centre weekly to play and help the children learn new skills.
