Two 8 year olds from the King David Linksfield Junior School decided they wanted to raise money for the Sociey for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
Using their initiative they arranged a wonderful prize which Tsogo Sun’s Gold Reef City kindly sponsored – a one night stay including breakfast and dinner as well as theme park tickets, movie tickets and ten pin bowling for the raffle as well as a few other smaller prizes to give the excited kids a few extra chances to win something.
For three weeks they sold R5 tickets once a week at break to their fellow learners in grade 1, 2 and 3 and raised such a level of excitement and awareness for the SPCA and the prize that the response was phenomenal with a whopping R4500 raised!
Gold Reef City is leisure attraction is characterised by a unique combination of nostalgia and thrilling entertainment, Pure Jozi, Pure Gold.
