The Interact club is proud to report on their most successful Winter Drive initiative which is currently in motion. The aim of which is to assist the community of Makhanda during the COVID-19 pandemic by collecting clothes to keep the less fortunate warm. The College boys are encouraged to keep on donating warm clothes to fit all ages to this worthy cause. We have collected nearly 230 items of clothing from the College community to date.
A special thank you to Old Andrean Russell Bennett and the Charles Glass Society of East London for their generous donation of clothing to the Winter Drive.
On Wednesday the 22nd July our Interact Club leaders, Jacob Erasmus and Ayomide Israel-Akinbo packed bags of donated items which were delivered to the Home of Joy Orphanage by staff. A group of excited children received the warm jackets and other winter items. The staff included Mr Manthata, Mrs Jamieson and Ms Libi. We were touched and humbled by the warm welcome we received from the children. Their smiles of happiness were a just reward for
the efforts of the boys.
Thank you to Africa Matshingana, one of our Interact Club leaders, who helped organize this Winter Drive initiative from the beginning to the end through our zoom meetings.
A special thanks must go to Pieter Burger for facilitating our visit to the ‘Home of Joy’ and sharing this special time of giving with us.
