How Can You Help

For most of the children that visit The Mercury Hibberdene Children’s Holiday Home, it is their first experience of a holiday, of a fully equipped playground, running water and a bed of their own. For five days they have unbridled fun and entertainment. They are given three meals a day and being part of a “family” will be a reality.

As in previous years, we appeal to readers of the Mercury and supporters and friends of the Home to help with donations in cash, goods and kind.

Cash donations can be made directly into the Home’s account: Standard Bank; Account number: 050769448; Branch: Kingsmead 040026. Please supply proof of payment so a receipt may be sent. Section 18A Tax certificates are issued too.

Donations in kind can be delivered to The Argus Community Projects for the attention of Vanessa Brisset at Independent Newspapers, 18 Osborne Street, Durban or to The Mercury Children’s Hibberdene Home directly.

We are also able to collect donations online and have a wishlist of items we would love to receive.
