This year our local community were invited to spend their “67 Minutes” at The Almond Tree. There was no work to be done and no expectations except to fellowship together while celebrating a day dedicated to the service of others. Supporters, neighbors and friends were invited to enjoy a “hug in a mug” along with an amazing Mandela Day Story time which was shared by a dear friend and awesome story teller Sue Houghton.
The children from Eco Kids Primary, joined the celebration and brought lots of goodies for the babies. They had the opportunity to interact with the toddlers and gave them lots of love and cuddles. A highlight of the day was the launch of Granny Goose’s Charity Shoppe. This initiative forms part of The Almond Tree’s sustainability plan to generate income for the organization. The charity shop offers new and second-hand baby items in excellent condition. This initiative provides the opportunity to generate income while allowing the community to benefit from buying quality baby goods at affordable prices. The TAT team were super proud to unveil the new shop which was beautifully designed and fitted by dedicated full-time volunteer, Tracey Buitendach. Thank you Trace!!
What would “67 minutes” be without a heart of service? The dedicated volunteers from Jatniel’s Impact “Year of Your Life” program were on hand to serve the guests and did what they do best in serving with excellence. Thank you guys! You are all amazing and we love you!
