Following the announcement by President Cyril Ramaphosa of a 21 day lockdown in South Africa starting from midnight on Thursday (March 26) until midnight on 16 April, and in an effort to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus or Covid-19, Saint Giles will have a complete shut-down.
Given that our beneficiaries may be immune-compromised due to their disability the remedial exercise disabilities gym will be closed.
The work centre, where we employ disabled staff on a full-time basis will also be closed.
The charity shop will close.
Staff will be working remotely, where possible, on annual leave or short time.
As our income is in part derived from the work that we do in the work centre we are appealing to our donors, where possible, to open their hearts and do something charitable during these strange and trying times.
Our banking details are as follows and you will receive an 18A Certificate for your donations:
