Arthur Roman, our driver and Maintenance worker for the past 6 years at CRCH. Mr Roman mentioned at his farewell that he wanted to give back to the community and working at CRCH , making a difference in the lives of our children, being on call and helping where needed – was a calling. We wish him well as he begins a journey – Happy Retirement, Mr Roman!!!
The children at CRCH was treated with snacks and cakes and each of them had a Party Dress and a princess Crown on. The children marvelled their outfits and high heels and twirled around on their toes like little ballerina’s. It was really great to see the children enjoying themselves. Special thanks to Karryn Cartoulis, family and friends who donated towards this event – Carrying on the legacy of Lauren Searle who started the backpack initiative already 10 years ago.
A fun filled evening with entertainment thanks to the lovely Bev scott Brown and Lauren Hendricks, Maxine Smith and Joe Scaffers and the Valiant Hearts Christmas Band for playing while guests sang along at the Carols by Candlelight. Lots of smiling faces as Father Christmas called their names, the children hurriedly ran up ( some of them) other still wary of the white beard man in the red suit. Special thanks to AV direct and Sound engineer, Elroy, Photographer, Gavin Berry, and Sponsorship of tent by Base camp, Lightsaver (pty) ltd , Press Family, DG Murray Trust, Cupcakes from Caghrey West and everybody else who have helped make this event special.

On Thursday, 29th November 2018, the staff of DSC Attorneys visited our children, arranged a snack for the children and gave them lunch – Mcdonalds – they also arranged new duvet bedding and sheets for 30 beds. Pictures of the DSC staff making up the beds in the different bedrooms. Specials thanks for treating our children and putting a smile on their faces. Spider-man & Little Princess and many more.
Thank you to the staff of DSC that interacted with our children and who made our children feel special.
Every year 20 of our children are invited to Uncle Willy’s Party – Yesterday, 4th December 2018 was very exciting for the new comers to Group C.
The children enjoyed the playing with the straw although some of them ended up itching as the evening progressed. They loved being able to interact with the band, playing instruments, singing along with the piano and later when the fairy and Father Christmas came, it was magical for the kids. Special thanks to all the helpers , the characters and all volunteers who helped to make this event special for our children – We are very thankful that our children benefit from this initiative – As I spoke to one of the founder members, Vicky Kempthrone – she reminisced that when they started her daughter now already an adult in her late thirties was the little fairy.
Thank you all and we wish all of you Blessed Christmas – See you next year.
