Our annual family day was held on Saturday 13 October. Organised by our field workers, supported by other members of staff, it was a great success. About 600 people from surrounding farms and Colesberg attended.
The day was aimed at raising awareness of Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) and good nutrition. Prizes were handed out to people who had the best vegetable gardens.
Activities included a jumble sale, a jumping castle for the children; and a soccer match for the grown-ups. Cakes, cookies, sweets, popcorn and cold drinks were on sale.
There were lots of things to eat, including 4 600 packets of popcorn kindly donated by Manhattan (Premier).
Almost 1 000 cold drinks were sold.
For the children, the highlight of the day was the Jumping Castle.
The two soccer teams, made up of young men from the farms in the district, were presented with complete soccer kits, purchased with the proceeds of last year’s Family Day. The teams are managed by Zollie Maquina and Vuyisani Phemba.
