Pupils from schools in the area also benefited from the centre’s relief programme
ELDERLY people in Colville, as well as pupils from four schools in the surrounding area, benefited from the Colville Community Rehabilitation Centre’s relief programme on Wednesday.
The elderly community members were given food parcels, while 15 pupils were selected from the four schools to receive tracksuits.
The secretary of the centre, Riaan Kuyani, said that the programme was sponsored by the National Lottery Fund (Lotto) to cater for the poor and vulnerable.
Kuyani said that the four primary schools that benefited from the tracksuit handover were Progress, Endeavour, Beacon and Floors North.
He explained that the centre was the brainchild of Mervin Pillay, who serves as the chairperson.
“We also run a soup kitchen, through sponsorship from PMB Mining, where we serve the community with a meal three times a week,” he added.
