Goscor generates smiles for the children of Legacy Centre
After donating a total of R70,000 at the Cape Town leg of the annual charity golf challenge, the Legacy Centre was able to use the donation toward the upgrade of their playground.
Legacy Community Development NPC is a registered non-profit organisation located in Long Street, Kayamandi. The organisation operates from the Legacy Centre, a multifunctional community centre from which some of Kayamandi’s most pressing needs are addressed. Ever since it’s opening in 2002, the Legacy Centre has been constructively dealing with childhood development, skills development, health care and food security. Built in collaboration with Stellenbosch Gemeente and Stellenbosch Municipality, the Legacy Centre forms a vibrant hub largely managed by local residents.
Both customers and suppliers alike enjoyed the day on the course on the 26th of May at the Atlantic Beach Golf Club, but at the end of the day it was the children that were the real winners. The money raised on the day was donated to the selected charity – Legacy Centre – who used the funds to upgrade the play area of their facility.
Debby Marx, marketing communication manager of Goscor, says “there is nothing better than hearing the delight of children or seeing their happy faces. We were pleased to be able to light up their faces and make a difference in their lives.
The day was a great success for all. Our customers were able to network with us as well as other sponsors on the day,” Debby concludes.
