Hollywoodbets Malvern chose Ethelbert Child & Youth Care Centre as their organisation of choice for Hollywoodbets’ Social Responsibility Programme. The team talks about their visit.
Ethelbert Child & Youth Care Centre
For the past 109 years this organisation has been providing a home to orphaned, abandoned, neglected or abused children within their community. Ethelbert is currently home to 65 children.
Team members from Hollywoodbets Malvern visited the local centre to deliver some essential household items including groceries, clothing and toiletries.
Gaylene Allen, Public Relations Officer and Fundraiser at Ethelbert, is grateful for the support.
“Our weekly grocery bill is between R6 000 and R7 000. Therefore, any grocery donation reduces the weekly bill, which allows the Home to redirect the money saved into other areas like maintenance, school needs or outings for the children. The same applies to clothing donations. Any money saved in one area can always be redirected into other areas,” she said.
Well done to our Malvern team for choosing to support such a worthy cause that is helping to change these children’s lives!
