CHILDREN at St Christopher's Home took a break from their usual chores last Saturday as staff from Vinod Patel Group of Companies did their cleaning for them.

Organiser of the clean-up Sharvind Prakash said they enjoyed taking time from their schedule to assist the children at the home.

"It was a very fulfilling day for all of us and it was heart-warming to see the smiles on the children's faces," he said.

The staff members also spent time with the youngsters and handed over cleaning materials, groceries and clothes. The children were also treated to afternoon tea.

"We take our social obligations very seriously and as such, we have been doing similar community projects for some time now," said Mr Prakash.

"We at Vinod Patel feel that it is essential to give back to the community and we are taking steps to ensure that we are able to reach out to our communities and serve their needs as best as we can".
