Eunice contributes to Tekkie Tax

Miss Hope International, Anri Buys, with some of the Eunice girls and members of Free State Care in Action.

The funds that Eunice High School are raising for Tekkie Tax Day on 25 May 2018, will go to the Free State Care in Action (Vrystaat Versorging in Aksie), as contribution to provide services to children. The owner organisations of FS Care in Action are the Suid-Afrikaanse Vrouefederasie (SAVF) and Epilepsy South Africa.
Tekkie Tax is a fundraising project owned by NGOs, managed by NGOs for the benefit of NGOs.
Free State Care in Action attended a special assembly period at Eunice on Monday 21 May. Anri Buys, Ms Hope International and volunteer, spoke about hope and how girls could assist one another.
Child abuse was also a topic of discussion and learners were told how they could help each other in their communities. Buys also told them how they could get involved with FS Care in Action and become more active in the community.
Tekkie Tax provides an opportunity for welfare organisations, big and small, to participate in a fundraising project in a fun and risk-free way. Via the structures of the Tekkie Tax project, they will be able to raise much needed funds for the services Free State Care in Action renders as well as building relationships with new donors.

Saints Boys contribute 1000 meals to hospice

The boys of the Saint Andrew’s Junior and Senior Interact Clubs joined Joan Marsden and Dorianne Huygen of Sunflower House for a photo with some of the 1 000 meals the school donated to the organisation.

The Saint Andrew’s School has provided the Sunflower House Children’s Hospice with 1000 meals to feed between 4000 and 6000 people at the school last week Tuesday.
According to the school’s Marketing Manager, Brad Morgan, the food collection was done by the school’s Senior and Junior Interact Clubs.
Head of the Senior Interact Club, Kabelo Leiee, expressed his pride as a member of the Saints community, particularly with all the efforts the club and the school took over the last four weeks with regards to charitable deeds. “We really hope that our hard work will make a real difference in the lives of those who will be receiving our gift,” Leiee said.
The food parcels the school donated consisted of lentils, a soup mix pack, and rice. “When we opened the children’s hospice 20 years ago, Saint Andrew’s was part of it, so it is really wonderful for me to stand here today and to say thank you, once again, to Saint Andrew’s for this amazing support,” said Joan Marsden, who accepted the donation on behalf of the Sunflower House.
“We look after children whose lives will be very short. The one thing they all need, is food. When we take food to them, it is not just about giving them something to fill their tummy, it is about saying to them there are people who care about you, and that gives them comfort,” Marsden continued.
This is the school’s second donation to the hospice in recent weeks, with the first being 18 boxes of clothing which were given to the hospice during a visit to the facility on Monday, 23 April.
Sunflower Children’s Hospice is a non-profit organisation and relies on volunteers and awareness fundraising to not only support the children at the home itself, but 400 children from all around Bloemfontein.
