Thanks to CPUT staff members who contributed to the CPUT Gives Back campaign, learners at the Athlone School for the Blind have been gifted with much needed school shoes.

The call for school shoes was made earlier this year, when the university launched the CPUT Gives Back campaign.

Public Relations and Events Coordinator at the university, Cathy Cloete, says the campaign forms part of the university’s 10th birthday celebrations and will run throughout 2015.

“From blanket drives to collecting canned food for the homeless, the university community is celebrating this year by making a huge difference in the lives of thousands of people,” she says.

Cloete, along with members from the CPUT Marketing and Communication Department, delivered the schools shoes to the Athlone School for the Blind.

Situated in Bellville, the school provides education and residential care for blind and visually impaired children from disadvantaged communities.

The school’s psychologist, Patricia Scheepers, says the donation of schools shoes is much needed.

“The majority of our children are from the poorest of communities,” says Scheepers.

“We really appreciate this donation.”
