Phatshoane Henney Attorneys’ Christmas Tree brings gifts to over 80 needy children

Thanks to the generous donations of Phatshoane Henney Attorneys’ clients and staff, over 80 Christmas gifts lit up the recent December holidays for less fortunate children in the Free State.

This follows Phatshoane Henney Attorneys’ invitation to clients and staff to donate gifts to the firm’s Children’s Christmas Tree, established to the benefit of needy children from ENGO Child and Youth Care Centres. These centres across the Province care for children who have been removed from their homes.

Large numbers of people responded from all over the country - by either by dropping off a festively wrapped gift - such as a toy or other luxury item - at the firm’s offices, or having it couriered all the way to Bloemfontein. Personally addressed to specific children, these gifts were then distributed to various youth care centres in Bloemfontein, Winburg, Memel and Kestell - just in time for Christmas.

“ENGO Free State, and ENGO Child and Youth Care in particular are truly grateful for Phatshoane Henney Attorneys for launching this project to make our children’s Christmas so special.  ENGO aims to create hope in places where it has been taken away, and it’s projects like these that give hope again to a child who has none, as well as the knowledge that there are indeed people out there who care and want to give love,” says Nicolene du Toit, ENGO Marketing Manager.

However none of this was possible without the support of Phatshoane Henney Attorneys’ clients and staff, adds Magdel Louw, Marketing and PR Manager. “Thank you so much, to everyone who responded so enthusiastically and gave so generously. We look forward to having an even bigger Christmas Tree at the end of 2018!”
