The Shalate Drop In Centre has been caring for the orphans and vulnerable children in Seshego township since 2006 and is run by Dorah Semenya. The centre looks after 122 children and the staff provides the kids with lunch and helps them with their homework and school projects.

Team members from Hollywoodbets Polokwane visited the centre and received a very warm welcome from the local community. The team delivered a swing set, tables and chairs for the children to sit on, cleaning supplies and storage containers. Everyone was very grateful to receive the donation.

“We are very happy to receive this donation from Hollywoodbets. We needed the tables and chairs for the children to sit on while they do their homework, and they will also enjoy playing on the swing set. We have various income generation projects where we create goods to sell to the community at a good rate but despite this our centre relies heavily on support from the community and we appreciate all donations,” said Ms Semenya.

Well done Team Polokwane for supporting this cause and investing in South Africa’s youth.
