    Vanakam, Prem Namaskar & Namaste Dear Children

    Well exams are over for most of you and you can look forward to sleeping late.

    I am sure you all are excited about the upcoming holidays and the Soccer World Cup.

    The WCTF has more excitement for you…… How would you like to be the proud owner of a brand new Cell Phone and Exclusive Books vouchers and MTN Science Centre vouchers and Mc Donald’s vouchers and ice rink vouchers…… should I continue???

    The WCTF has come up with an exciting project that will take you back to your roots and keep you engrossed this holiday. What do you know about the fact that your forefathers arrived here in South Africa on a ship from India 150 years ago. Imagine what fascinating facts and tales, you might learn about their hopes and dreams through their life as well as how they achieved goals and overcame obstacles.

    For all those between the ages of 10 to 18 years all you have to do is write an interesting essay in your own words and share with us what makes you proud to be celebrating this prestigious event that brought your forefathers to South African shores.

    And for the 7 to 9 year olds you have to draw a picture.

    Attached you will find the relevant entry forms for the essays and the drawing contest together with the rules of this contest in detail.

    Please have the form filled out correctly and get your parents to go over the rules with you very carefully.

    Remember the contest closes on 30th June 2010. So, when school closes you will have enough time to put on your thinking caps and get creative.

    Oh…did I tell you that there is a Computer for one lucky contestant, so get those entries in soon…

    We look forward to seeing lots of entries.

    Also, please diarize the 24th July 2010 as the date of the prize giving for both the contests.

    You take care. Best wishes & warm regards and keep safe during the holidays.

    Good day to everyone.

    I just wanted to enquire if anyone is interested in sponsoring party packs to the underprivileged children.

    As a lot of you know, we are involved with “Straight From The Heart” . We have taken on doing feeding to the underprivileged people in the area at least once a week by everyone in the group.

    We are now doing Christmas Party Packs for the children which cost R6.50 each.

    This contains: Chips, Juice, Chocolate, Toy, Hat and sweets.

    The area of distribution would be the Underprivileged kids at Lansdowne ( Opp Lansdowne post office), Phumalani Village, Bokmerrie in Athlone and Pooae road (by Elite).

    We are trying to make as many as possible so that we don’t give some children and disappoint other’s.

    We currently have funding for 600 hampers and would love to do a 1000.

    Any one of you willing to assist, this would be appreciated. Any response and contribution’s need to be relayed as soon as possible (by Monday afternoon) this is so I can give feedback on Tuesday.

      Love to all from Alan and Morgan
