Checkers Cornubia supports needy school

Selvan Chetty (admin manager), Jayant Ramdewu (branch manager), Vanessa Naidoo (PR manager), Sandra Moodley (admin at Solomon Mahlangu School), Rajen Govender (regional manager), Kevin Sevlall (principal of Solomon Mahlangu School) and Tevin Chili (deputy divisional manager).

Newly opened Checkers Cornubia handed a voucher worth R5, 000 to aid an extremely underprivileged school, Solomon Mahlangu Primary.

The cheque which will come handy to the school, was handed over to delighted school principal, Kevin Sevlall, during the opening of the new Cornubia Mall on Thursday.

The mobile school nestled in the Cornubia Development opened its doors in July 2015 and caters mainly for pupils who hail from indigent homes, with many of their families unable to afford the basic of necessities.

Ecstatic Sevlall told the Phoenix Sun that the donation will go a long way in supporting his school, adding that they have over the years relied solely on the kind gestures of generous donors for the daily running of the school.

Sevlall said the vouchers will be utilised to purchase stationery, cleaning detergents and any other equipment needed for the school.

Checkers Cornubia regional manager, Rajen Govender, said the store chose to support a school in the area as their way of giving back in the community where it is needed the most.

“It was a privilege to hand over the cheque bearing in mind that they are amongst the poorest schools in the area,” said Govender.
