At the heart of Pembury is a desire to partner with others to achieve quality of life and see them thrive. This applies not only to our residents, but also to the communities we operate in. Wherever there are people, there are needs, and we feel it is our responsibility as an organisation to set aside time and resources to make a difference in our communities. We are currently looking for charities to support, so if you have any suggestions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are our current involvements:
- Pembury Bryanston 2017: Our residents each made a donation towards the Santa’s Shoeboxes project again. Shoeboxes were decorated and filled with clothing, stationery, toiletries, toys and sweets for less fortunate children. Wonderful job by the team there! Thank you to everyone that participated.
- Pembury Bryanston got a letter from the Baragwanath Hospital; thanking the knitting club for their teddy bear donation. Some of the teddies have been distributed to the Muldersdrift Clinic who will use them as part of a project to encourage new moms and babies to come to the clinic for inoculations and check-ups.
