Now an annual event, Titans have partnered up with the Firefly Foundation to raise funds for children at the centre. Bramley Children’s Home Marketing Director, Hanlie Delport and the rest of the staff were present to receive a donation from Multiply Titans Chief Executive Officer, Jacques Faul on behalf of Firefly.
The Home is one of many that are supported by Tshwane’s Child Welfare system, where children who come from traumatic backgrounds or who are orphaned, are taken in and cared for.
“We have about 49 children we are taking care of at the home. It is challenging because of the trauma some of these kids have suffered. But we try help them to cope socially as well as an adult through donations like this and also through financial support that the kids receive, as they are not all orphans. “ said Delport
As this initiative is close to the hearts of many Titans players, it was no surprise to see many of them captured in a game of cricket between the professionals and budding young cricketers.
“It’s always nice to be a part of these initiatives. Being able to help those less fortunate and in need is very important to me. It is very important to give others the opportunities that they might not be exposed to.” said Titans fast bowler, Lungi Ngidi.
“When you come to these homes, you expect to see a few sad faces, but today they were very energetic and happy to see us. The boys were also pretty excited to see them too.” continued Ngidi.
The Firefly Foundation in association with the Multiply Titans and Tshwane’s Child Welfare will be hosting a Charity ball in the efforts of raising funds for homes such as Bramley on Saturday 9 September at Tyger Valley College, Pretoria.
