This week the Danville Park Girls’ High School Family is thinking of those tiny, most vulnerable rhino. They are bringing R10 (our rhinos) to donate to The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization Rhino Orphanages. Imagine the difference that this will make in the lives of some of the most vulnerable wildlife on the planet.
At a recent assembly Rose Gumede (Manager) and Samantha Ammasen (Admin Manager) from Glenore KwikSpar awarded Danville Park Girls’ High School a cheque for coming second in The School Community Project. This fundraising initiative allows you to place your till slip into the school pledge-box. At the end of each school term these slips are counted and determines which school will get the largest share of the prize money! Although ALL the schools will share in the money it is the customers who decide which school will get the largest share! No forms or cards needed.
