That was the first thought which popped in to our minds as we finally counted all of the money that was collected from the civvies day. As you know, our goal was to raise R4000 for the Stop Hunger Now Organization based in South Africa. The R4000 guaranteed that our school would be feeding 2000 people. It also meant that we would be doing more than simply helping to pack the meals but could make an even larger contribution to the ‘Winter Challenge’ (for more information visit the Stop Hunger Now website)
The final amount collected from Wynberg Girls’ High School was a whopping R8400. Double the amount hoped for. In effect we have made a significant difference to the lives of not 2000, but 4200 people! The biggest reward is knowing that we CAN effect change for the good of our country.
We would like to extend a very big thank you to everyone who supported this cause. We are proud to be part of such a supportive and generous school.
