Evotel donates R10 000 to Ladysmith Hospice at the family fun day.
Fibre Network Operator, Evotel, held a family fun day in support of the great work the Ladysmith Hospice is doing for the community this past weekend, Saturday and Sunday, 12 and 13 February 2022.
The fun day, which forms part of Evotel’s commitment towards community support and development, was held at the Oval Shopping Centre in Ladysmith and saw attendees being treated to free boerewors rolls and good music, whilst the children were treated to cotton candy, popcorn and a jumping castle. There were also great prizes on offer where attendees won various Evotel merchandise, such as caps, masks and t-shirts by popping balloons. A lucky prize of a Takealot voucher to the value of R1 000 was also up for grabs and won by Ladysmith resident, Nomsa Hlonswane, who shared in the fun and good times.
Evotel also handed over a cheque of R10 000 to the Ladysmith Hospice to assist them with whatever immediate needs they have.
“Evotel is a company that not only believes in providing Fibre for Everyone, but is also a company that cares for the communities it operates in, like Ladysmith. We reach out to those in need and help in whatever way possible and on this occasion we focussed our attention on the Ladysmith Hospice and its supporters. We donated a R10 000 to the cause and is confident that our contribution will be of great help to them in their efforts to provide quality palliative care and improve the quality of life of persons with life-threatening illnesses,” says Bradley Bekker, Evotel’s Head of Brand.
Says Chandre Jannon, Programme Manager at Ladysmith Hospice, “This Evotel donation is fantastic and comes just at the right time. It will help us with buying for staff uniforms, which we currently have too few of. It will also greatly contribute to cover the shortfall in our insurance to buy a replacement laptop that was stolen three weeks ago. The Evotel staff are incredible and their enthusiasm is contagious.”
Evotel is constantly investing in the communities it operates in and supports various initiatives, such as also providing free fibre access to schools in the area, to assist with the education of South Africa’s youth.
More of these fun-filled events are being planned by the company for other towns and charities across the country in the near future.
