After receiving an empathetic call from DA Ward Councillor Tommy du Toit, the Paintsmiths Ballito team immediately responded and jumped into operation, giving the Isiphumelelo Creche in Driefontein a much needed ‘pick me up’. Tommy du Toit approached Paintsmiths Ballito Manager Heidi Gibson, on behalf of the principal of the Creche, Harriet Ndlela, who was desperate to give her Creche a new lease on life.
Heidi kindly agreed to paint both the interior and exterior, using a variety of quality products, paying much attention to the areas of damp and deep cracks in the wall. Much fun was had in deciding on the multi colours, and the result was a two-tone finish.
Resident painter Wiseman Bhila and his team, provided the labour, as did one of the Paintsmiths employees Lindani Dlamini, who co-incidentally lives just down the road from the Creche.
Her only regret said Heidi Gibson, is that she was not able to be there when the children returned from their school holidays. The look of delight on the childrens’ faces was priceless, according to the Principal and was the biggest thank you they could ever have received.
What a fantastic transformation! Well done Paintsmiths Ballito!
