As a NPO and PBO the centre relies on donations but we also try our utmost to generate funds by different means of fundraising. The centre, over the years, hosted many functions so the residents decided to purchase crockery and cutlery as opposed to continually hiring supplies which the centre could not afford. Out of this the idea came about for a sustainable small business, so one of the residents took it upon himself to gradually increase the amount stock the centre had. In 2010 the Hiring Supplies was rolled out to the pubic and has slowly but steadily grown over the years. We currently hire out tables, chairs, linen, crockery and cutlery.
The centre can now cater for a function of up to 200 people. Thus far the knowledge of the centre’s Hiring Supplies has only been spread by word-of-mouth so business has been steady but unfortunately not enough to grow the amount of stock or to lessen the severe financial strain the Centre endures. However the income generated from this small business provides much needed relief from rising costs of everything required to survive from day to day.
