MOOSE VALLEY FARM OWNERS RAISE R15 800 FOR THE 2014 VANWYKSDORP CHILDREN'S CHRISTMAS PARTY!

Christmas is coming, and the turkey is getting fat. Christmas. A joyous time. Trees, lights, and holly. Gifts and laughter. Fun and holidays.

Christmas can be a wondrous time. If you have a home. A job. A bank account. If you don't, then Christmas is just another day of doing hard time again on the streets. No trees. No holly. No lights. There isn’t even snow, ice and a cold north windfree o'charge. Misery. And misery limits itself to no particular age group.

The impetus of the Moose Valley Family Christmas and Easter initiatives is to create family intervention with lasting and concrete results. If not within the shorter time frame but certainly part of a greater initiative to do more than just “good” but create valuable opportunities for the children of Vanwyksdorp who are sadly exposed to a myriad of issues like substance abuse, hunger, shelter and who often are not clothed sufficiently to enjoy warmth in the winter. Adding to this, unemployment rates, HIV/Aids and TB infections, poverty, violence and crime are all factors that are negatively impacting on the development of theVanwyksdorp youth today.As Chair of the Association I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for your kindness and generosity to the following people for the much needed funding towards the Christmas Party. This is truly a very special gesture and will go a long way to making the day a memorable one for the kiddies. To John-Louis and Liza for their R5000 donation, Pierre and Illana Blaauw for their R3800 donation, Pete and Hanna for their R1200 donation, Vernon and Tony Gibbs-halls for their R1000 donation, Pietro and Amanda Russo for their R800, Jeanne & Ross Murray for their R500, Adi Bensmaia for R500 and an anonymous donation of R2500 as well as the ice cream cones, viennas and cold drinks donated by Andre and Maryna Lehmann. These are huge sums of money and I cannot thank you all enough for these valued pledges. The total thus far a staggering R12 300! We can now get the Lunchbox theatre group as an additional item - they are brilliant and do a play on “looking after your pets”(dog show) and a balloon clown!!Thank you for making true the Spirit of Christmas…kindness, good will and sharing with others.
