The Sandton and East Rand hotels in the City Lodge Hotel Group have again handed over a massive haul of used but functional linen, duvets, pillows, towelling, crockery and kitchen items, plus new bottles of body lotion, all to the value of R228 000, to Emthonjeni Community Centre in Zandspruit.
Emthonjeni is dedicated to community upliftment of those in need. Its successful Swop Shop, which exchanges glass for goods, works to help benefit the impoverished community in Zandspruit.
Head of partnership development, Estelle Mengel, says: “City Lodge Hotel Group’s support has repeatedly played a big role in the success of our Swop Shop. Thank you for your continuous belief and trust in what we do as an organisation and contributing to positive change in our country.”
“We are delighted to be able to help this worthy cause once again, even in these tough times. We appreciate all that Emthonjeni Community Centre does for the communities of Zandspruit and are pleased to be able to lend a hand where we can,” adds Lindiwe Sangweni-Siddo, coo of City Lodge Hotel Group.
