With October being both national transport month and the month of mental health awareness, a visit from the GO GEORGE mascot, Georgie, to the happy youngsters with different kinds of challenges at Legacy Centre in Denneoord, was inevitable.
Georgie heard about Legacy Centre’s October awareness campaign, “Special needs children are different, NOT less!”, and their lollipop project to raise funds to create awareness about these children. When he found out, on top of that, that the Môreson children who receive home schooling would be visiting Legacy Centre last Friday, there was no stopping him.
The kids were hugely excited when Georgie came around the corner, and happily joined him in dancing and singing “Die wiele van die bus draai om en om”. Georgie shared some interesting information about the buses with the children, and was very pleased to hear that quite a few of them were regular GO GEORGE passengers.
