Small Town, Big Change

Students at Ladysmith Intermediate School showed that a small town like Ladysmith is capable of big change

Students at Ladysmith Intermediate School showed that a small town like Ladysmith is capable of big change, when it comes to reaching out to people who may need a helping hand.

The Small Town, Big Change group at the school, which is organized by students, handed over more than 30 bags, each containing items that would help make life a little easier for clients of the Ladysmith Soup Kitchen.

On hand to accept the donation was Myf Plecas and Steve Gold, who expressed their gratitude on behalf of the community and the people who will be receiving the gift bags.

“We would like to thank you very much for your project, and we hope you have learned a lot by it,” Plecas said.

“There are a lot of people in this community who do need help.”

She said people’s pre-conceptions about people struggling with poverty may be skewed. “It’s not just homeless people we look after,” Plecas said.

Their gift bags will be helping single mums and dads, seniors and pensioners on fixed incomes.
