John Wesley Children’s Home Gets Makeover
Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Thanks to the generosity of Emperors Palace and a few of their suppliers the John Wesley Children’s Home in Kempton Park, a home away from home for neglected, abused or abandoned teenage girls, has undergone a major makeover. At a cost of approximately R300 000 the house, which can accommodate 20 residents, was repainted, inside and out, new floors, skirting boards, cupboards and ceilings with down lights were installed, the kitchen was restyled, bathrooms were revamped and an extra room, with bathroom facilities was created. In addition, two staff offices were improved, a schoolwork station for the residents was built, two solar geysers and a water tank and pressure pump were installed while substantial electrical work was also carried out. As part of the new look kitchen Emperors Palace also donated a new five-plate gas stove which the Home’s Manager, Lilian Le Roux of Kempton Park is pictured preparing to test out while social worker, Martie Pienaar of Benoni and the project manager for the renovation, Emperors Palace’s Agent Mangena of Joburg (CBD) look on during the latter’s site visit on Thursday morning, September 27.
