On the 18th of July 2012 Trollope Mining Services became Mandela Day change-makers by supporting the children from Colin’s House in Benoni.
Colin’s House cares for 17 children, 8 girls and 9 boys ranging from the ages of 3 to 13, providing them with shelter, food and a place of safety.
TMS employees planted a vegetable garden which will provide fresh produce for the House. The ground was prepared, fertilizer added and then a selection of vegetables planted including: spinach, beans, cabbage, lettuce and potatoes.
When the children arrived from school, lunch was provided for them and then the fun started. Each child was given 2 cup cakes which they decorated with great enthusiasm! TMS also handed out a fun pack to each boy/girl which contained a selection of toiletries and stationery items as well as a few sweet treats. The smile on their faces was unforgettable and displayed their sincere appreciation.
