MANDELA DAY 2014

The Silversoft team had a wonderful day contributing to the SOS Children’s Village in Mamelodi by planting trees and spending time with the children.  The firm also made a financial contribution towards the running costs of the organisation. Garth Gibson, Corporate Fundraiser, thanked us for our efforts and said that it will be wonderful to watch the trees grow and become part of the village.  In addition, the funds will be put to good use – ensuring they can keep the smiles on the children’s faces.
