Mandela Day – 18 July 2017

This article was posted on Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Mandela’s spirit lives on!

Mandela Day celebrates the life of Nelson Mandela and his selfless service to South Africa and the world. It is also a call to action, encouraging everyone to give of their time, do something for other and make a difference.

This year, Power of 9 chose to make a difference at Fallen Angels and Hospice.

Half of the Power of 9 team took the morning off work to give love to the fur babies at Fallen Angels Pet Rescue. We also donated food, blankets and toys.

The rest of the Power of 9 team, spent their afternoon assisting the St Luke’s Hospice in their shop; sorting, counting, filing and steaming!

Here are some pics of our clients’ initiatives on Mandela day:
