Remedial Reading Project & Whitlock Care Centre
Chairman Neil Dodds attended Brandovale Primary School in Klipplaat yesterday for the handover ceremony of the proceedings from one of the Summit Auction charity lots sold on auction on 28 September at Graaff-Reinet.
The headmaster, Mr Jacobs, and the three remedial teachers (supported by Five Loaves Two Fish) Mrs Bruiners, Ms Jaggers and Ms Williams who was also present, showed Neil some of their work.
Fiona Hobson, the reading project co-ordinator spoke, thanking Neil Dodds for the sacrificial commitment that he makes in attending other game auctions to draw buyers to the Summit auction, where, partly because of their friendship and interest in the Karoo, they are generous in bidding on the charity lots. Mr Jacobs welcomed the Summit team to the school, thanked them for their support and said what a positive impact the remedial reading project was having amongst the learners. Chairman Neil Dodds thanked the remedial teachers for their commitment and dedication and encouraged the pupils to learn hard and get everything they could out of their years at school.
Neil and Helen also visited the Whitlock Care Centre yesterday to view the changes brought about, that were enabled by the proceeds raised on the Charity lots. An expanded wash room area, industrial washing machine and tumble drier to make the running of the home more efficient! Thank you to William and Hannetjie for giving your patients a loving and caring home.
Our appreciation and gratitude to Norman Adami of Nyumbu Game, Neil Rex of New Wycombe and Wickus Pretorius of Buffalo Creek for you generosity and making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
