The Goodwill Center owes the teachers, parents and especially the pupils of Whitgift School a huge thank you! They took on our center as a focus cause for their fundraising efforts (along with the Tapologo and Tsholofelo projects who work with victims of HIV and AIDS in South Africa).

The entire school was involved (organisation being mainly carried out by the sixth-form committee) in planning events and taking part. There was a huge range of activities including cake sales, adventure races, comedy nights, talent shows (with fantastic dance performances), science challenges, make your own Robot Wars and quizzes. All of the students worked incredibly hard to bring it all together and raised, for our center alone, over five thousand pounds.

This money is such a huge help to us and will secure our evening English and Computer classes for over 2 years. These are such an important aspect of our center, providing quality education to over eighty students. Having good English and Computer skills go a very long way in helping our children/young adults advance through school and secure places at either university or in good jobs. Nearly all of our students, coming from very poor backgrounds, would be unable to study in private schools (where fees are paid) so the provision of these classes really is invaluable.

Thank you so much again Whitgift, it means the world to us!
