Since our Open Day on 27 March 2021, we have had a fantastic response from our partners, friends and community organisations to support the needed upgrades to our first rescue home in Magaliesburg.

Our “wish lists” were displayed on the walls wherever a need was and much of that has been taken care of with only a few outstanding matters. We’re confident that this will be taken care of by members of the community and friends of Hopelands.

To date we have received the following support and donations:

Paint: 400 litres of Plascon paint donated – by Jan Kruger

• Rhinolite of interior walls: Material and labour sponsored – by Gary Combrink (Labour: Albert & Justice)

Carpentry: Altering of kitchen cupboards and office cupboards: Labour sponsored – by Gary Combrink (Labour: Michael & Kyle)
