Message from Chairlady and Founder, Cindy Norcott
Dear friends of the Robin Hood Foundation
As the 2015 year gallops towards a record breaking finish, I would like to thank you for your support, generosity and encouragement this year. Our intrepid committee set about 2015 with very big goals on our to do list and I am delighted to say that every single goal has been achieved and every expectation we had has been exceeded. The community support in 2015 has been extraordinary and we have been delighted to meet so many new supporters, volunteers and friends.
As this is our tenth year of serving the community, the theme for 2015 was "A Decade of Miracles". This proved to be prophetic as we have seen one miracle after another.
One of the highlights of 2015 was our breath-taking "Decade of Miracles" coffee table book, lovingly put together by two of our committee members, Robyn Keulder of Cherish Photo Books and Odelle Hadnum of the Chilli Source Design team. This book highlights the heart of our organization and is a heart-warming collection of stories and pictures of our random acts of kindness. This book makes a special Christmas gift at only R150 per book.
For me, the biggest miracle of the year was our Future Women Of Africa conference, where we saw 1000 disadvantaged women being inspired, educated and uplifted for 2 days at City Hill Church.
Our year end Bless a Granny campaign is in full swing and once again, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the public, all wanting to make a difference to a stranger they will probably never get to meet.
By the end of 2015, we will have had more than 100 projects taking place, under the supervision of our remarkable, committed co-ordinator, Kim Griffith Jones and our awesome committee and volunteer teams.
We are grateful for every bag packed, every baby jersey knitted, every Rand donated and every person who has been involved in making a difference to our organization and to our corner of the world this year. We wish you a Blessed Christmas.
