WHAT IS A FETE?

A "fete" typically refers to a large outdoor party or festival, often held for a charitable purpose, such as raising funds for a community project or celebrating a special occasion. It can involve various activities like music, games, food stalls, and sometimes performances or competitions. It's a festive gathering meant for enjoyment and often involves participation from the local community.

 

WHAT MAKES OUR FETE SPECIAL? (In no particular order:)

We are thrilled to announce that the Khaya Cheshire building project is now underway, thanks to your generous support and contributions. Your belief in our vision to build Khaya Cheshire has propelled us forward and brought us one step closer to creating a brighter future for the children in our care.

 

Your generosity is not only transforming bricks and mortar into a physical structure but also shaping the dreams and aspirations of countless children who will benefit from quality care and a basic education. Your kindness and compassion are truly making a difference in the lives of others.

 

As we embark on this journey, please know that your support is deeply appreciated and will forever be remembered. We are committed to keeping you informed about the progress of the project and the impact it will have on the children.

 

We have a committed team of builders and contractors on site, who have ‘lived’ this project on paper for over a year…and now you are bringing our dream to fruition.

Once again, thank you for your unwavering support and belief in our mission. Together, we are building more than just a partial day care facility, we are building hope, opportunity, and a brighter tomorrow.

 

Thank you to the precious Khaya staff - Lee-Ann, Daisy and Siya for your patience with temporary premises. The new centre will be a blank canvas on which you can imprint your special touch and create a special environment for the children.

 

Thank you to the countless donors who through golf days, dinners, donations, raffles etc. have contributed to this wonderful and exciting venture.  A huge thank you to Dante and Paulo for providing us with some space during our two-year planning phase. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. Tavcor – your contributions and support to this project have been overwhelming, invaluable and monumental. Megan and your Tag team - your fabulous philanthropic work that Tavcor does for community projects – particularly Khaya (for over 22 years) shows that anything is possible with teamwork, dedication and perseverance!!!

 

Cannot wait for our new doors to open, you will all be welcome!
