The Rotary Club of Grahamstown Sunset and WESSA, supported by local businesses took 100 Grahamstown children to Addo on Monday 25 September in celebration of Heritage Day. Seven buses left Grahamstown on Monday morning to take the children on an unforgettable experience.
A big thank you to everyone who made the trip possible – Sarah Hanton from VGHS the kingpin of the whole event; bus drivers from Rhodes University, VG, Graeme, Kuyasa and Eluxolweni; the staff members of Raphael Centre, Kuyasa, VG, Graeme, Eluxolweni and Rhodes University. A thank you also, to the Rotary Sunset members who made food – and what a feast it was! There were food donations from Mugg & Bean, Pick n Pay and Checkers which helped Rotary to keep within their budget.
Finally, WESSA donating a trophy for the best presentation, and its members accompanying the children – thank you! And to SANParks for all their help.
Ubuntu is alive in Grahamstown!
