NB PUBLISHERS / MEDIA 24 BOOSTS ELRU’S BOOK CAMPAIGN WITH A GENEROUS DONATION OF 12 000 BOOKS FOR ALL OUR CHILDREN IN LANGA

AND

RTT LOGISTICS DONATES THE TRANSPORTATION OF THE BOOKS FROM BELLVILLE TO ELRU IN LANSDOWNE

 

Craig Daniels has been a printing representative visiting  ELRU for a number of years.  On seeing the piles of books at ELRU, Craig asked what these were being collected for.  We explained that we had embarked on a Book Campaign in 2015 to collect 5 000 new and good second hand books for all the children in Langa.  Imagine our surprise when he said that his wife, Liza, was in charge of distribution of books at NB Publishers/Media 24 and he would enquire if she could arrange a donation.

Incredibly 12 000 new children’s books were in no time organised by Liza as a donation to ELRU. 

It was now our turn to find the transport to cart the 4 ton of books to ELRU’s premises in Lansdowne.

A telephone call to Sandra Booysen at RTT Logistics resulted in exactly this.  She very kindly took ELRU’s  emailed request and Annual Report  to ask her branch manager, Bruce Bartholomew, if he would consider donating the transport to ELRU.  Bruce Bartholomew came back in a short space of time with a positive reply.  They would deliver the books to ELRU on Saturday 19 March 2016.

 

ELRU thanks NB Publishers / Media 24 and RTT Logistics for their generosity.
