Christmas parcel project 2016
By Christelle Heil and Shireen Rabie – Community projects team
The Christmas parcel project of Bester and Bextrans is annually a big highlight on the calendar. Christmas parcels are bought by employees, and then wrapped and decorated with great care. On 25 November this year Shireen Rabie represented our personnel at The Herberg Children’s Home in Robertson where she handed the 132 Christmas parcels to the children. What a privilege to be part of this worthy cause and to see the children’s gratitude and happy faces when opening their parcels! We thank the ARCCON Group and Area51 for once again sponsoring the transport of the parcels and the branding on the minibus.
The Herberg Children’s Home Fair is on 4 March 2017 in Robertson. It is one of their fundraising projects and is always a very successful event. The funds are used for necessities such as clothing, toiletries and non-perishable groceries. Hopefully some of you will be able to attend the fair. They welcome any donations. Please contact The Herberg Children’s Home directly. Their contact details are available at www.herberg.co.za.
