Mayor Maboke encouraged to donate and put a smile on the faces of many disadvantaged people in the city at Christmas. There are people living in old people and children’s homes.
“I want to appeal to our local companies to give back to communities that support them. Let’s give a cheer to less privileged people at Christmas. Even the Bible says there is more joy in giving than receiving,” said Maboke.
“It is our tradition as N. Richards to donate towards the Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Fund. I wish everyone knew that love is not love until you give it away,’ said N. Richards Director Andrew Chekani.
Present at the launch were school heads, the business community as well newly elected Junior council.
