Heatherdale Children’s Home, which is located in Athlone, is the place of residence for approximately 40 abandoned, orphaned and neglected boys and girls.
NEWKIDZ approached Mr. Eddie Cyster, the director, to offer some help in the area of maintenance at this Home.
On the morning of Wednesday the 25th November, employees from the Vodacom call centre rallied together to brighten up the boys wing of the property.
Their wish list that the boys had was:
- Repair the dilapidated play structure
- Repair or replace their television set
- Install cupboards in the senior boys bedroom
With paint brushes in hand and job cards to guide them, the Vodacom teams got to work and at the end of a long and tiring day were able to hand over:
- A repaired and brightly painted play structure
- A donated colour television set which was in very good working order
- New cupboards for the senior boys bedroom
