Kim Griffith Jones from the Robin Hood Foundation popped in to tell us about the children at Lalelani Primary.

Take a listen to this incredible story in the podcast, then read the blog below:

Through various initiatives, the Robin Hood Foundation is doing everything in their power to uplift Lalelani Primary with the vision to “make a positive impact” in the community. 

The school's ablution facilities are almost non-existent, classrooms are jam-packed with children, and they’re in dire need of a makeover. There is damp in the ceilings, and there’s been no level ground for the children to play on.

Sporting equipment and even a soccer ball are a dream for these children. The boys kick cans around when they play soccer.

Over time, the Robin Hood Foundation has worked tirelessly to improve things for them, and recently graded the land to make a sports field, but it was sporting equipment that Kim wrote to us about - asking if the Big Favour could make a difference in the lives of these young children.

Dylan Cherry and the team from MRP Sport jumped at the opportunity to help the school and in the process, will not only make a difference, but also change these young people’s lives. 

A huge thank you to Dylan and his team who have committed to giving the following to the kids of Lalelani Primary School:

  • 20 Soccer and hockey balls
  • 28 Hockey sticks
  • Soccer shorts for various ages 
  • Various cones
