“Many of our families have been affected by the horrible scourge of cancer and have lost loved ones to this disease. And many South Africans are unable to afford education for their children. This is our way of ensuring that a beautiful experience, being The Garden of Lights, can work for a brighter future for many. We are proud of our association with the Cancer Association of South Africa and Peermont Trusts for children’s education and upliftment.
Please join us over the festive season to spread a little cheer,’’ comments Mark Jakins, Peermont Marketing and Regional Operations Executive.
