Watercrest Mall’s ‘Angel Tree’ Christmas party at Siyanda Creche 4.12.17

For the past few years Watercrest Mall have hosted their Angel Tree in the foodcourt of the Mall. The tree holds tags with names of some very special hearts that our community then ‘pick’ off the tree and buy a pressie to spread some Christmas love. Last year, the Angel Tree saw over 150 Grannies and Grandpa’s being blessed through our Bless-A-Granny campaign at Hillcrest Res Hospital and this year, nearly 150 children in our community are the recipients of this beautiful campaign! Over 50 of whom were the little hearts at our newly opened Siyanda Creche in Ntshongweni. Joined by Father Christmas and a wonderful team of volunteers, we’ve just got back from the most special morning – Christmas at Siyanda! Their little faces were priceless – for some, their very first Christmas, for others not even knowing what to do with the present, you can just IMAGINE the excitement when our volunteers helped them to open their gifts to reveal such beautiful toys, clothes and treats! Our most grateful thanks to Watercrest Mall Management for choosing to partner with us again this year; and to all the amazing shoppers that took a “tag” and donated their gift; Steelbank for donating 30 of the gifts as well as Pauline, local resident, that joined us and baked special reindeer cookies for all the children to enjoy. It’s starting to feel A LOT like Christmas <3
