On Wednesday 14 June 2017, we were the lucky recipients of a whole lot of help and donations from the Investec Statutory audit team from the major accounting firm KMPG. The team had been nominated within their Financial Services division to perform the second Random Act of Kindness for the year. This is what they had to say and show about their time with us:
We decided to visit The Service Dining Rooms on Wednesday 14 June 2017.
The Service Dining Room, under the management of Karen Cain, provides nourishing meals (breakfast and lunch) to the less fortunate every week day.
Patrons are provided with a free meal when they present a token – which they receive using the ablution facilities at the Carpenters’ Shop or a medical check-up at the clinic. For those who are unable to present a token, an amount of R1 is payable.
The Investec audit team had a wonderful time serving food to the patrons and also assisted with the clean-up thereafter. We also donated beanies and socks for distribution to the patrons of the Service Dining Room.
Please visit their website for more details of the wonderful work that they do and contribute in cash or kind.
Thanks to all of you at KMPG who gave up your time to be with us, and to those who couldn’t be there in person but still made a contribution. We value your support, and could certainly not serve our clients as we do without this kind of generosity from our amazing Cape Town community.
