Staff, volunteers honoured

The Christone Revell Children's Home staff worked hard behind the scenes to make the event a success.

In celebration of Women’s Month, volunteers, board members, host parents and staff of Christine Revell Children’s Home in Athlone, were honoured with a breakfast, held at the Cullinan Hotel in Cape Town, on Wednesday August 9. A total of 80 women were treated to a scrumptious meal, entertainment and an inspirational talk by singer and author, Chrystal Swanson.

The hotel “adopted” the children’s home a few years ago, and every year sponsors the venue and the breakfast for this occasion. This year, everybody dressed up in their finest African traditional clothes. The Christine Revell Children’s Home is home to 55 abused, neglected and orphaned children.
