A HARD-WORKING Illovo Head Office team did their bit for Mandela on 18 July at the Waterloo Primary School. A lot of hard work was worth it when they saw the end result, a clean classroom that the children would walk into the next school day.
Chantel Hardy reports: The volunteers joined with the school staff to start the day by singing "Happy Birthday to Madiba", after which it was cupcake time, then we were issued with t-shirts, hard hats and paint trays and selected the classroom to paint.
After much scraping off of Prestik and bubblegum from the walls and the peeling paper from the notice board, we sand-papered the walls and got down to the painting. It was great working with such a wonderful team, who even ensured the classroom was swept clean before we left the school.
We enjoyed the opportunity to assist with this project and we look forward to carrying the Illovo banner into other community upliftment projects.
