Sponsored Events & Educational Outings

Christmas party 2011

 

Dude hall in Soweto. Each year eg solutions plc, the back office optimisation software company and other supporters of Doornkop host a Christmas party for the children – organised and supported by the eg South African team who raised the funds through a sponsored fun walk.

 

The children put on an amazing mini concert for the guests with all the different classes taking part in an activity. Lunch for the day was prepared by another sponsor, Digipos with the support of Samantha Phelps who sponsored the party packs and cup cakes, she was introduced to DNCC by eg’s Kay Moodley.

 

Easter bunny visits Doornkop

 

The children were delighted at a surprise visit from the eg Easter bunny. Wendy Jeavons, Managing Director of eg in South Africa, said: “The children were delighted with the Easter Eggs and this was made possible as a result of the recent fundraising and generous donations from staff and clients.  The eggs were eaten quickly by the children to avoid melting in the hot temperatures!”

 

Christmas Party 2010

 

The children and babies cared for at the crèche went on an outing to Rietvlei Farmin Brackenhurst. As part of the outing the children had a tour around the farm and saw ducks, hens, chickens, guinea pigs and rabbits and goats roaming freely.  The children had fun chasing the ingulube (Zulu for pigs) until the pigs started to chase them! They had an outdoor picnic of HUGE Boerewors sausage rolls and drinks under the gazebos that had been provided to keep everyone out of the rain shower. The older children, (who graduate from DNCC this year), danced for the sponsors and delivered a speech in their graduation cloaks to thank them.  All made possible through the fundraising activities

 

Doornkop first visit to the zoo in 2009

 
For many of the children the trip to the zoo was the first time they had left their hometown of Soweto and seen live animals. Following a tour around the zoo, the children enjoyed burgers from the braai (or barbeque) provided by ‘South Africa – The Good News’.  The day ended with a performance from the children of ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’ followed by a traditional African Dance. The trip was a great success as it was fun and educational for all the children.
