Back to School 2013
The Wellington Lions Club recently received an invitation from the Wellington Rotary Club to contribute to the 2013 Back to School Campaign. At an auspicious event, held on the 15th January 2013, a number of speakers motivated the learners and parents to make school attendance a priority.
The contribution of R5000, shared equally between the Rotarians and Lions, was used to provide each learner with a ‘Back to School’ hamper valued at R50 each.
The stationary was provided by Paarl Stationary and the day was organised by Monte Christo Miqlat, a Paarl based service organisation, and the Lukhanyo Youth Development Centre.
