It was a very exciting wroom-wroom-day when in January, 40 bikers filled the street at the 10th Avenue KidsCan! Centre. These caring bikers pulled their resources together and delivered much needed stationary for 2022 to KidsCan!. Thank you to volunteers Peter & Estelle Powell for tapping into their network to make this happen.
PRIZE GIVING 2021
At the end of every year, we award our children for their outstanding achievements & for doing their best during the year, not only academically but also in terms of life skills.
With the help of our supporters we are able to put together a Christmas gift pack for each child to take home.
The children performed music and sang songs for the parents, staff & volunteers who attended this special event.
