With Spring in the air and a good holiday behind them the students, parents and staff of St Benedict’s took to their cupboards for a good clean out in aid of Hospice East Rand. Dubbed Bring-A-Thing for Hospice East Rand they brought something to school to donate to Hospice that could be resold in their charity shops to generate funding for the NPO. “Money made from items sold in our Charity Shops goes directly into our organisation to support community members with life-limiting illnesses, especially those not fortunate enough to have a medical aid,” says Jonquil Siepman, marketing and media liaison for Hospice East Rand.
“St Benedict’s is an annual supporter of Hospice East Rand but this year the Bennies family really outdid themselves. The amazing donations received and kindness shown from such gracious hearts was overwhelming. We are immensely grateful for their support and cannot thank them enough,” confirms Jonquil.
