Help Christmas dreams come true

SHE dreams of a doll to play with . . . the little boy about a fast red remote control car.

School stationery, clothes and a ball are also high on the wish list – and even a chocolate.

These are the Christmas wishes of almost 300 learners from Patensie and Kareedouw.

Residents can help make the Christmas dreams come true this December.

After a very successful Christmas project last year, the Kouga Express is once again appealing to residents to help warm the hearts of less fortunate children in the community.

A doll, a train, a tractor, a ball, a tea set and even shoes and a school bag are all some of the simple items that could warm the hearts of children that have never received a colourful wrapped Christmas gift of their own.

This year the Kouga Express, in conjunction with Pick n Pay and Fountains Mall, will be collecting gifts for close to 200 learners from De Mistkraal Primary School in Patensie and 100 learners from the Joy Children Foundation in Kareedouw.

The Kouga Express relies on the generosity of the community to satisfy the demand for presents. Without the support of local residents this appeal would fail.

Each learner has written his or her wish onto a special Christmas “wish card”, with their name and age. These cards are displayed on the Christmas tree in the forecourt at Pick n Pay in Fountains Mall. Residents are able to select the wish card or cards that appeal to them and buy the gifts written on the cards. Residents can either wrap the presents themselves, or have them wrapped by the Kouga Express team.

More information

The following information must be clearly marked on the present:

  • Name of school
  • Name and surname of learner
  • Grade of learner.

Each card is unique to a deserving child. If a card is taken and not returned, that specific pupil could miss out on a present for Christmas.

Presents can be dropped off at either the Kouga Express office at 1 Mimosa Street in Jeffreys Bay or at Pick n Pay. All the presents must be returned by November 27. The presents will be handed out to the learners at a special Christmas party at the school.
