PSFA schools raise funds to feed hungry school children in honour of Blisters for Bread.
Posted on October 27th, 2021 by Charles Grey
In honour of PSFA’s annual fundraising event, Blisters for Bread which we have had to sadly cancel for the past two years because of this awful COVID-19 pandemic, we extended an invitation to all the schools on our feeding programme to organise a special fundraising activity for PSFA. To encourage the schools to participate in this campaign, we offered a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for the schools that raised and donated the most money.
Here are the results:
- Winner – Helderkruin Primary School for raising R6 915. The school received a Dell desktop computer loaded with Windows 10 and a 22 inch Samsung screen kindly sponsored by CrewTech.
- 2nd place – Forest Village Leadership Academy for raising R6 000. The school received a 40-litre Defy chest freezer sponsored by PSFA.
- 3rd place – Wellington Primary for raising R5 000. The school received catering equipment for their kitchen sponsored by Plastics for Africa and Tierbos Gas.
The runners up were:
1st runner up – Axios School of Skills for raising R4 500
2nd runner up – St Michael’s Primary School for raising R3 940
3rd runner up – Surrey Primary School for raising R3 038
4th runner up – H.J. Kroneberg Primary School for raising R2 600
5th runner up – The Ark Christian School for raising R2 220

Each school will be presented with a certificate of our appreciation.
We are delighted to announce that these schools collectively managed to raise a fantastic total of R39 474.90. This amount will enable PSFA to provide 80 learners affected by poverty with daily nutritious breakfasts and lunches for an entire year.
PSFA would like to take this opportunity to thank all these schools for joining us in the battle against childhood hunger. We are truly grateful for your support!
