Laddsworth collects a car load of gifts and toiletries


“This is the only Christmas present many of the children who come to our centre will receive, I am so excited by how much you have collected,” Pat Kanzler, manager of Siyabonga Aftercare Centre in Edendale told pupils at Laddsworth Primary School in Hilton at a recent assembly.
Laddsworth pupils collected enough toys and toiletries to fill Kanzler’s car – the boot and back seat were stacked to the ceiling. They will be distributed at Siyabonga’s annual Christmas party. The Aftercare Centre offers aftercare and educational programmes to 600 children from Edendale and Imbali.
Pictured with Kanzler and the goods collected are pupils Tyran Watson (standing), Jaryd Thomas, Mvelo Hlela, Tyler Francis, Simile Mbhele, Kiara Naiker, Drshika Mahabeer, Robyn Campbell and Carmen Abrahamse.
