New kitchen on the way for Maloney’s Eye rural school
Work has begun on a new kitchen for Maloney’s Eye Rural Primary School after the official sod turning ceremony took place on 30 November attended by sponsors Maropeng and Dad’s Charity Challenge.
The kitchen is valued at R100 000 and a builder from the rural community has been sourced to assist in the project. Over the last two years Maropeng has developed a special relationship with the school and community donating almost R810 000 in food and infrastructure.
“A number of our staff come from the Maloney’s community or even attended the school so it is a project which is very close to our hearts and our staff enthusiastically support the community whenever they can,” says Tony Rubin, Managing Director of Maropeng.
The Dad’s Charity Challenge has adopted the school as one of the beneficiaries of its Joburg to Durban cycle event, and has also established a partnership with Pick ‘n Pay whereby the school is provided with fresh produce on a weekly basis to supplement its daily meals.
“We are delighted to be part of this worthy project and its always great to see all the money raised from our fundraising event being put into action where it is needed most,” says Rob Jackson, Chairman of the Dad’s Charity Challenge.
