Now it’s GSK Pharmaceutical’s turn to bless Heatherdale Children’s Home in Athlone, Cape Town.
Early in the morning on Thursday the 15th September 2011 GSK Pharmaceutical’s staff members congregated at the Heatherdale Children’s Home in Athlone, Cape Town to upgrade the girl’s wing.
They were briefed on the day’s proceedings; divided into teams and then each team had to choose a leader who was given a detailed job description and a crate with all their materials. And from there it was “on your marks…get set…go”!
This was a one-day project and like many of our projects we still stand astounded at the amount of work that can be completed in a restricted amount of time simply because of the commitment of the volunteers.
The girls bedroom area is all on the first floor so let me paint a picture for you…you have 40 adults all trying to get their work done on time + ladders + buckets of paint + handyman team = busy. But despite this everyone was accommodating and there was lots of laughter and banter between the teams
