Having a clear-out?

Your unwanted trainers, suits, dresses and even undies can make a difference in South Africa...

Published on July 13th 2009.


Having a clear-out?

Those less fortunate in the Gauteng Province of South Africa need your help. 'A Deal 4 Africa' has been launched today by Manchester 235 to collect a broad range of goods from the people of Greater Manchester for South Africa. Manchester 235 will be working closely with Aaron Mokoena, South Africa's football captain who grew up in one of the townships.

Manchester 235 director, Andy Orr said: “Here in Manchester we are appealing to all of our customers, staff and of course members of the public who might be passing through to hand in their donations. Any donations will be given to the people who need them the most. We will be distributing the supplies directly to the children and needy within the townships and your clothes, sports goods, reading books and art material will make a huge difference to their lives.

“We are not collecting money, but material goods that will instantly make a difference to the lives of the recipients. By September 2009, a huge number of people in Gauteng will benefit from your generosity.”

The casino has used the theme of a deck of cards to differentiate the collection categories:

Hearts- clean second hand clothing for adults and children, especially warm clothing. Smart clothes such as suits and dresses will assist a young person seeking employment thus enhancing their future prospects, there is also huge demand for clean second hand underwear.

Diamonds- children’s and adults’ reading books.

Clubs- sports kit and equipment. This can include soccer boots, trainers, sports kit, footballs, tennis rackets cricket bats. South African kids love to play sport.

Spades- art and craft materials such as paint, paper, crayons, drawing and writing materials, glue and fabrics, any arts and crafts materials.

Anyone is welcome to donate unwanted goods to Manchester 235 from July 13 until the end of August. Everything donated will be sorted by 235 staff and shipped in a container to the Emerald Casino Resort in Gauteng where the Emerald Charitable Foundation will distribute the goods to the townships and to local charities.
