The group was served lunch and refreshments.  After lunch the children from the Nontsikelelo project performed African and contemporary dance and song led by the leader of the group, Ntombi Magantse and her drum. The day was enjoyed by all and before leaving each child received a parcel with toiletries and other gifts which were generously by members of the Greek Orthodox Community.
