LEPHALALE — The founders and other staff members of the New Hope Centre in Lephalale handed over hats and bags filled with necessities to car guards at different shopping centres in Lephalale.

Car guards working at the parking lots of Mogol Superspar, Lephalale Square and Lephalale Mall were very surprised about this act of kindness and many of them said they are not used to being spoiled. All the items in the bags are sponsored and CANSA Lephalale provided much needed sun screen to all of the guards.

The New Hope Centre in Lephalale is a non-profit organization with Audrey and Malcolm Horkins as founders. The Centre was already established in 1999 and the name “New Hope Centre” was developed out of the common core purpose of the members, which is to bring hope to those who feels like all hope is lost.

Malcolm, also a chaplain at the South African Defence Force, encouraged the guards and said: “We see you even though you don’t always see us. Maybe some of you don’t believe in God, but I trust God. If you give, you receive and through the Lord, everything is possible. What we are doing here today is important – we care about you and we appreciate you”.
