Madiba Day 2017 was a highlight on the Hollywoodbets calendar. Seventy team members visited the Ekusizaneni Centre that is run by Thobile Mhlongo who is also known as “KwaMashu Mother Theresa”. The purple team played with the children and also spent some time upgrading a vacant building that will be used as an old age home in the near future. Thanks to the help of Hollywoodbets, All Type Aluminium, Ivek and Ziyaduma Group Mother T will soon be able to open the Ethobile Old Age Home that will provide some much-needed relief to elderly members of the community! This year our team contributed to this good work from their own pockets by raising R2 700 in cash and donating toiletries to the kids.
During the second half of the day we chose to collaborate with the Hollywoodbets Dolphins. The players and staff members treated a group of children and workers from Child Welfare to a fun day out at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead. We joined in the festivities and also handed over a donation of toiletries to each of the homes. We believe in making a positive difference in our communities, and team members around South Africa took some time to make a difference on this great day.
Hollywoodbets donates to orphanages, hospices, underprivileged schools and other organisations every year as part of our Social Responsibility and CSI programmes. Our communities are so important to us, and we make sure that they are assisted in every way possible to continue the great work they do for the people they support.
