Tygervalley Shopping Centre – Newkidz on the Block

Wish Tree Initiative – 3rd December 2014



The 3rd of December  was the finale of the annual Tygervalley Centre Management Wish Tree Initiative.

It was amazing!

A total of 125 new toys were purchased and wrapped by Tygervalley shoppers for 125 children resident in Children’s Homes and Foster Families in the Cape Town area.


Today, representatives from Tygervalley Shopping Centre Management; Tygerberger Community Newspaper and Jive (who were the primary sponsor in this campaign) came to Christine Revell Children’s Home in Athlone to hand over the presents to the little ones. Thanks to Wimpy all the children received a delicious ham and cheese toasted sandwich to enjoy with their Jive cool drink.

One little boy (he couldn’t be older than 4 years old) had wished for a rugby ball and his little face lit up when he opened the packaging to find just what he had wanted – what a moment to witness!


The children at the following Centres will also be receiving their toys too:

    –          Masigcine Children’s Home – Mfuleni

    –          Rainbow House – Goodwood

    –          Linawo Children’s Home – Thornton

    –          Baitul Ansaar Child Care Centre – Mitchells Plain

    –          Two foster families



Sincere thanks to everyone who took the time to participate in this initiative.

To give to someone who cannot repay you is the best gift you can ever give.

On behalf of the Newkidz on the Block team, we trust that you will be blessed for the kindness you have shown to these little children.
