A winter wonderland comes to Joburg as Century hosts Christmas in July events

Winter is supposed to be cold – but doesn’t a winter wonderland in Joburg seem a little farfetched? And it turns out that thinking Christmas only comes once a year is also completely wrong! Over four weekends in July, residents of Waterfall Estate, The Hills Estate, Blue Hills Estate and Crowthorne and Carlswald Luxury Apartments were greeted with a magical winter wonderland.

The clubhouse areas of each of the estates were transformed into a Christmas snow scene with frosted white winter trees with bright red lollipops dangling in the falling snow. Children laughed with joy and delight on a white jumping castle to the tune of classic Christmas carols with free hot chocolate to shake winter’s cold nip. In the arts-and-crafts marquee, children decorated paper Christmas trees. In the centre of the arena was a large Christmas tree with two big gift boxes – one for animal donations and one for human donations… more on this in the article below.

Have a look at some of the magical scenes we captured below.

Taking time out to give back

Whilst the Christmas in July events were free for our residents and their children, we did ask for them to donate to our nominated charities – Kitty and Puppy Haven and Yenzani Children’s Home, both located in Midrand.

It was Century’s honour to collect and handover the 3 carloads of generous donations. On Wednesday 1 August, we visted both charities to deliver the collection of food, blankets, toys, clothing and cash. It is the residents of our various developments who are the heroes for donating so generously, THANK YOU!

Kitty and Puppy Haven based in Midrand was our nominated charity to receive the animal food and items donated. Kitty and Puppy Haven is a pro-life sanctuary started in 2000 with the sole purpose of rescuing neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Their aim is to provide the animals in their care with the best medical attention, dietary requirements and above all love and attention while they nurse them back to health before placing them in suitable, loving homes. Visit Kitty and Puppy Haven on Facebook

Yenzani Children’s Home was our nominated charity to receive the food items, clothes and toys we received. Yenzani is a registered children’s home, Public Benefit Organisation and Non-Profit Organisation/Company operating since 2002. They rescue children from the court system and provide a safe, loving home for them to flourish until adulthood. The home currently supports 12 children, all of whom attend school and are just the most pleasant and appreciative kids. www.yenzani.org

Giving back to the kids on Mandela Day

On 13 July, a few days before Nelson Mandela Day, the Diepsloot Youth Programme, decided to celebrate South Africa’s first democratically elected president with a fun day for the kids of the Diepsloot informal settlement, which was hosted at the Muzomuhle Primary School.

Thank you to the staff from Century Property Developments, Riversands Incubation Hub, Bukhosi and Tintswalo who all volunteered their time to help make this fun day possible.

The child friendly activities such as arts and crafts, face painting, jumping castles, fun games, sack races and even a dance competition kept the children entertained for hours. “This year, we wanted to celebrate the day by just providing the kids with a chance to have fun. Nelson Mandela described youngsters as both the nation’s greatest treasure and our future,” said Tracy Henley of DYP.

Visit the Diepsloot Youth Programme website to see what amazing work they do in our less privileged communities

Children showed their creative flair doing art along with fun sack races

Staff were more than willing to give of their time for this worthy cause
