On behalf of everyone at Cheshire Home Summerstrand we extend our deepest gratitude for your incredible generosity and dedication at our recent annual fete.

 

Your donations of products and precious time made a significant difference and contributed immensely to the success of the event.

 

Your support not only helped us meet our goals but also touched the lives of many in our community. It is through your kindness and commitment that we are able to continue the care and support required by our 56 adults residing here, and 15 children at our Partial Day Care Centre – Khaya. 

 

We are pleased to share with you that our target was reached for this year. We acknowledged the fact that our economic climate is experiencing huge strain, but despite the negatives, we were able to still achieve a target of R 350 000 for the event (expenses excluded). This comes with huge sacrifices from the team - extra and longer working hours, carrying of heavy items, stress, sourcing volunteers and sourcing donations. I must commend my team for their outstanding efforts again, it’s a privilege to work with you all.

 

Please know that your contributions are deeply valued and appreciated. We are truly fortunate to have such compassionate and giving individuals like you in our community. Your efforts exemplify the spirit of goodwill and generosity that makes our community stronger. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you and creating more positive impact together in the future.

 

With love,

DEIDRE BURGER

During Mandela Month (July), citizens are encouraged to spend 67 minutes of their time in service to others in need. These 67 minutes are in appreciation of the 67 years that Nelson Mandela spent fighting for justice, equality and human rights for all. We are planning a Cheshire Olympics morning on 18 July…please contact us if you would like to get involved!

 

Dear Cheshire Homes PE,

At MySchool, our commitment to protecting our planet and conserving our environment is stronger than ever. To reduce plastic waste and save our precious trees, we are making some important changes.

 

WHAT IS CHANGING?

 

We are transitioning to digital sign-ups for new supporters, ensuring a significant positive impact on our environment.

HOW WILL WE DO IT?

 

From 1 July 2024, MySchool will no longer accept paper application forms for new supporters. Instead, we encourage you—our valued beneficiaries—to guide new supporters through either of the following digital channels:

 

1. Visit our website: www.myschool.co.za

2. Download our MySchool app

3. Use the attached QR code

4. For your supporters who prefer something tangible, they can obtain the last of our physical cards from a nearby Woolworths and SMS your “Beneficiary Name” to 31231. One of our friendly consultants will call back to complete the supporter card activation process.

5. For supporters who prefer something digital, simply copy and paste the below link into your messages and Cheshire Homes PE will be preloaded as the selected beneficiary.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we take these steps towards a greener and more sustainable future.


Together, we can make a big difference!
