It was the incredible sound of children's laughter that echoed around Kwalata Phiri Camp between 3-7 October and
18-20 November 2011. Taste Hol-dings, teaming up with The Just Footprints Foundation (JFF) - an organisation which includes children's charities such as CHOC
(Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa), Reach for a Dream and Cotlands hosted children's camps on two separate occasions during these dates. JFF is a
registered non-profit organisation that was founded in February 2008 specifically to meet the need for a unique outdoor camping experience that would provide
safe and secure adventures for children with serious health and life challenges. From the 3rd-7th October, Scooters Pizza and St Elmo's in conjunction with CHOC,
hosted a fun-filled camp experience with children that were either cancer patients or those who were currently in remission.
The days were spent doing many different exciting activities and an enjoyable time was had by all of those involved in this rewarding event. A memorable event
that took place at the camp was the teams from Scooters Pizza and St Elmo's involvement in helping the children create and cook their very own pizzas.
The Maxi's Camp was held the next month and welcomed children from the Gateway School for Disabled and their teachers to the grounds. The Maxi's team
was very involved in the project and spent the entire Saturday with the children playing games and hosting a "Build your own Burger Lunch", to the delight of all
the children present. Feeling inspired to further contribute and give back to their community, the Maxi's team later went to a local old age home and took the
surprised residents burgers and chips for dinner.
"We are so happy and feel honoured to be involved with JFF, as their cause is one that all members of Taste Holdings feel deeply passionate about, and committed
to. Every event that we partner with JFF to do is so rewarding. Seeing the joy in the children's faces is an experience that can not be summed up in words,"
comments Michelle Voges, Manager of the CSI project.
