“Forever young” Border golfers and local companies raised R50 000 for the East London Child & Youth Care Centre (ELCYCC) by participating in the annual Algoa Cares Charity Golf Day hosted by regional radio station, Algoa FM.
“Thanks to the golfers and sponsors who brought out the kids in themselves by taking part in our annual charity golf day, Algoa Cares is able to help ELCYCC extend its Early Childhood Development Centre,” says Toinette Koumpan, Marketing Manager of Algoa FM.
The money will be used to extend the centre so that it can accommodate up to 20 children at a time from both the ELCYCC and the community, says Larne Robus, Social Worker and Fundraiser at the charity. At present the centre has space for 12 children.
Algoa FM Operations Director, Alfie Jay, handed over the cheque on Friday, November 18 at the ELCYCC.
