Twickenham Mine donates blankets, shoes and lunch boxes in celebrating Mandela day


AS part of Nelson Mandela day celebrations, Twickenham Platinum Mine brought smiles to local kids when they handed blankets, lunch boxes, and shoes to pupils at three local schools.

The mine also spent their 67 minutes painting the Ntobeng Creche which is situated at Mantsakane village. The officials got dirty as early as 09:00 putting a fresh coat of paint at the school.

The other schools that benefitted from the mine’s good deeds are Tshokela crèche which is at Ditwebeleng village. They also received blankets and lunch boxes.

Led by the management of the mine, the delegation’s last visit was at Seelane Village where they donated lunch boxes and school shoes to learners at Hlapogadi Primary School.

Vincent Mphofelo the Social Performance Officer of Twickenham Platinum Mine said it was a great experience for the mine to be part of the Nelson Mandela Celebrations

“We made sure that we give back to the communities that are surrounding the mine. We aim to assist our communities where we can. This is not the last time we are giving back to our people. We will always try to help in the best way we can.  Twickenham, cares about its surrounding communities and wishes to boost education locally.”

Mphofelo said the learners needed to study hard to be better people. “We need someone like Mandela from our villages. Nothing will stop anyone from our surrounding villages to be a president of this country. Focus on your studies, Mandela fought for better education and you are benefiting from it.”

Hlapogadi Primary School Principal Mr SG Mashabela applauded the mine for handing the gifts to his learners. “Madiba was a loving person, just like Twickenham, as they showed us love by giving us these gifts. We hope they visit us more often to assist our learners and our school.”

Lele Nkoana, a pupil said the blankets will assist them this winter. “We won’t be affected by the cold weather anymore, thanks to Twickenham the days of going to school barefooted are a thing of the past.”
