Since 2008, BCA has held successful Children's Holiday Programmes which enable children to play and develop in safe environments for 9 years with attendance of more than 400 children per year from across Pietermaritzburg. From 2012, we decentralised this programme. It is now being held in 12 additional areas. In 2014, we had the highest attendance ever with over 800 children attending.
Last year the focus was on Dealing with bullying. We had less numbers this year than the previous year about 500 attended.
Fundraising helped cover the costs with less profit than in the past but the in-kind gifts supplemented the income. A lot of MANCO members supported by volunteering and raising the funds.
Indigenous games were once again one of the highlights for the event! The focus was on Dealing with bullying.
