Off to a great start

On this first trading day of 2017, 298 children brought in a massive 4.5 tonnes of recyclables. The children have been collecting recyclables over the holiday period, and they could buy a lot of their school supplies with their mulas. Stationary, books and school clothes were very popular items during this trading day.
Thanks to Office 4U and the art auction supporters, most basic stationery items were obtained at the best possible price. This means that, for eg. 5kg of plastic delivered, a child could take home a pencil, pen, eraser, sharpener, ruler, book, brown paper and still have 2 Mula left for a toy, socks or breakfast cereal!
The school uniforms were bought with money donated by the Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm.
Ninas Restaurant who have been great supporters of the JBRP donated a delicious mince roll to each child. They not only volunteer their time, but also donate food once a month.
A huge thank you also goes out to the Friends of the Library who donated two crates of children’s books to be “sold” in the shop.
One of the most popular items that the children buy is toilet paper. Thank you to Gideon Stander also known as the Toilet Paper Man, for his long standing donation of this item.
