FRIENDS OF JOHNNY CLEGG
OWL RESCUE CENTRE
To boost conservation efforts, the Owl Rescue Centre has decided to manufacture products including owl houses from recycled plastic. We’re donating all our used office plastic to help. We also bought and mounted an owl house for local owls to call home.
RED CROSS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
Once a quarter, the Publisher’s Toolbox team knuckles down and makes about 300 sandwiches with various fillings which are donated to The Friends of Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Rosebank, to feed their patients’ visiting family members. The hospital is the first and only stand-alone tertiary hospital in sub-Saharan Africa dedicated entirely to child healthcare. This also doubles up as a fun team building project as we joke and laugh around the kitchen tables while making sandwiches.
WINTER BLANKET DRIVES
The team also regularly participates in blanket drives in the Homes in the area and homeless people who reside in the Claremont area by collecting blankets and various toiletry items for those who need them most during winter. We help where we can, knowing the winters in and around Cape Town can be long and severe.
Trinity Children’s Centre
We have also sponsored a child’s education at Trinity Children’s Centre for the last 4 years. Trinity Children’s Centre is an integrated early childhood development centre and independent primary school as well as offering a safe haven for children on the Cape Flats to learn.
We also like to make donations to hospitals, Girl & Boy’s Town and other charity organisations as we are able to. Our projects are aimed at helping the less fortunate in our area.
VOLUNTEER WILDFIRE SERVICES
Many of our team members are regular enjoyers of our beautiful mountain and the Volunteer Wildfire Services is a non-profit organisation that combats wildfires in the Western Cape, which is close to our heart. They operate solely off of public and corporate donations and therefore we have set up a monthly donation to this cause as well as step up with firefighting relief supplies in times of crises.
