Silverstar Casino on the West Rand recently put smiles on the faces of 80 children and their caregivers.

Casino staff held a special Christmas lunch for the children and caregivers from Angela Day Care and Ikageng Day Community Home Based Care at Ruimsig Spur. Both organisations provide a safe place for abandoned children.

An atmosphere of joy and delight filled the restaurant, with excited children enjoying delicious food, balloons, playing games and bouncing on a jumping castle. They were also thrilled to receive a surprise bag of goodies to take away with them.

“Christmas is one day of the year that most children look forward to, not only for gifts but also for the food and the celebration of love with their families,” said Shane Collinson, director of operations and complex general manager at Silverstar Casino.

“At Silverstar Casino, we know that this time of year can be particularly tough for an orphan, and so it gives us great pleasure to be able to host a lunch like this one.”

The annual corporate social investment initiative by Silverstar Casino was aimed at uplifting the lives of vulnerable children.

Lesego Mamathuba, a caregiver at Ikageng said, “The children were treated to an afternoon they will never forget.

“By giving the children a day that was just about them and showing them how special they are, Silverstar has made a meaningful difference, not only in our community but in our children’s lives, too.”
