Hi all. We delivered a large consignment of clothing and toys to KG Oct 9. :D

We didn't have enough space to take everything we collected :( , we still have a few bags of toys, magazines and clothing. If there is anyone heading up to the park from Jhb who could help carry the load it would be much appreciated.

Iain

Morning all

Scouter it is just a pleasure, it does take a lot of time but to see the faces and the excitement of the recipients makes it so much worth the while. This whole project wouldn’t be such a success if it wasn’t for you mites who have given with open arms and no strings attached.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU

I would just like to take the opportunity to thank a friend of a mite who have made a substantial donation towards the clothing drive, the friends name is Swen. We do appreciate it and all clothes and private donations received are going for a very good cause

Afternoon All,

A few months ago I received a full set of encyclopaedia from a well known forumite "Tshukudu" which was destined for one of the local schools, every time when we had the opportunity to go and deliver the books the head master wasn’t there and when he was we couldn’t get there. Now at last we got together with the head master of Rietfontein school and the books got delivered.

Image

The head master was so happy and said it got to them at the right time as they were looking at purchasing a set for the school.

Thanks again so much for all the donations it is highly appreciated not only by SANParks but by the recipients.

Just a reminder for all the kind 'mites who promised Christmas presents for the children at the Welkom School - the party will be on Friday 2nd of December so if you could please ensure your gift is up with Jannie by then that would be awesome.

Also for any CT 'mites, we are leaving at sparrow's on Friday 25th November and will hopefully still have space in the trailer so if you need your gift to go up, please give me a shout ...

Thanks again to EVERYONE who either bought gifts, has taken gifts up for us and who gave money to buy gifts - you are all amazing and are going to make a bunch of children VERY happy this Christmas - I do thank you SO much :gflower:

Afternoon All,

Today was a hectic day and a day full of mixed emotions. We did the Christmas presents this morning (With the help of Scouter) and on the other hand we as park attended the funeral of the late Riaan Franken - KTP Technical Manager.

The Christmas presents hand out went so well and the smiles and happiness.....well you will just have to wait for the pictures as there are no words to explain. It was a HUGE success.

Unfortunately I have to go and retrieve a cam trap so I will do my best to post pictures tomorrow...

Have a great weekend everybody.

KG

Morning All,

From KTP Management we would like to thank each and every mite who has contributed to the Christmas drive for Welkom School. It was a HUGE success and the pictures will tell the story.
I would like to thank Gill Glass (Scouter) and family who did the handover of the presents and also taking the pictures of the event.

You all have made such a HUGE difference in the kids’ lives and they have appreciated every moment of it.

The welcoming
