Mandela Day – 18 July 2015
Associated Media Publishing together with The Body Shop South Africa supported Heatherdale Children’s Home today for Mandela Day on 18th July 2015.
Heatherdale does amazing work in the lives of young children, providing a safe haven for those children who are at risk: whose homes are beset with financial difficulties, drug/alcohol problems or physical abuse, and who have suffered emotional trauma as a result.
We spent a wonderful morning with 22 children, spoiling them with professional face-painting, a professional balloon artist and decorating biscuits. The Body Shop team pampered the 20 staff members from Heatherdale with manicures and massages.
Apart from hosting a fun party, AMP staff also contributed towards 43 pairs of new winter pyjamas for all the children. The Body Shop sponsored goodie bags filled with lovely Body Shop products. A big thanks to Musica who also sponsored a new DVD player and CD player for the home.
