2017 will be the 10th year that our Chairman Bob Holt will be running a volunteering programme in South Africa with his charity The Footprint Foundation.
The programme has supported the Zenzeleni Village Centre, a community based orphanage owned and managed by Lucia (Gogo) and her sister Lindi, which sleeps up to 40 children but in addition feeds up to 400 other children from nearby schools and villages on a daily basis. It also supports The Little Angels Childrens home and Masibambane Community Care and Support organisation.
Volunteers carry out tasks such as painting and decorating, hanging doors and general building maintenance; to mention but a few!
Many of our Trustees as well as staff from Mears Group have taken part in these projects over the years & 100% of the volunteers have said that they would want to return and that they found the experience both memorable and humbling
