Christmas 2012 For the Children of Vanwyksdorp

Months of planning and fund-raising by Hanna Coetzee of Assegaay Blosch culminated in a spectacular Christmas wonder for 175 children of the Vanwyksdorp Primary School yesterday. As an integral part of fulfilling the objectives of the Gouritz MAB UNESCO Biosphere Reserve objectives and the committed approach to social responsiblity of care in the community by Assegaay Bosch Ranch, the Christmas Party was a huge success and brought smiles and laughter to the faces of many disadvantaged children. The activities were meticulously planned and organised for all the children to enjoy a safe and fun-filled day.

Included in the many activities was a huge jumping castle, two water slides (a true hit with all in the warm weather!!!), pin the tail to the donkey, fish for a prize, clay model making, cricket, a whale theatre show, painting plates and faces and a visit to Santa’s Grotto to receive their presents. For all, there was no shortage of lovely things to eat. Breakfast, a hearty lunch, cake, cold drinks, hotdogs, sweets and chips all part of any child’s favourite munchies.

A Very Special Thank you to Hanna Coetzee for such a brilliantly organised event and to Assegaay Bosch for initiating this great event and their generous sponsorship. Too many people need to be thanked for ensuring the success of the day. A special word of thanks to all who also kindly contributed to sponsoring this event. From Jenny and Abe’s preparations and assistance, to Wendi and Manfred Schowronek for the help, to the headmaster Mr Esau and his staff for assisting with the groups, Des and Allan for their help, Lunchbox Theatre, Ronel for her great assistance, Nicole for her time and patience, the staff of Assegaay Bosch and Rooiberg Lodge, Father Christmas and to the many behind the scenes who, through a great team effort, made this a truly memorable occasion.
