2017 Fundraising Events

Our team always try to find ways to support our chosen charities and meet their needs, whether they are material or financial.

This all becomes possible with our partners and the involvement of all our offices, colleagues and friends.

Some of the actions:

Early this year, we managed to ship toys and clothes for the children at Refilwe Community Project on a donation basis thanks to the help of our shipping coordinators and some of Hobart services providers who donated their time and efforts.

More recently, Ronell arranged for baby mattresses to be donated to the Preschool to provide some comfort to the kids for nap time. A projector was also donated by the HECT on this occasion.

Mattresses and projector donation:


Team Ireland “fun” raising

As part of their entry to the 94.7 race, the team members are all targeting to raise €1,000 each. To help them reach this goal for Refilwe, Team Ireland will be putting some exciting activities together:

The plan so far:
