67-minutes for Mandela Day


On Sunday 18 July several business owners donated goods that were handed out to members of the community by Beauty Grootboom as part of the 67 minutes for Mandela initiative.

First, the women who were patients in the Piet Retief Provincial Hospital’s maternity ward, each received blankets and a gift bag. Beauty then went to Driefontein and handed out donated mealie-meal and blankets to elderly members of the community.

A crèche in Driefontein was also visited and the little ones received matching shirts to wear to school.

It is difficult to thank everyone individually who donated a blanket, bag of mealie-meal or shirt but, the recipients of the goods are very grateful. Thank you!
