FNB Wines2Whales Beneficiaries & Charities

FNB Wines2Whales Creche Initiative

The FNB Wines2Whales has adopted various crèches in the town of Bot River in a drive to start giving back to the impoverished community along the routes of the event. FNB Wines2Whales and its partners see this as an investment in the future of kids and schools to assist in providing quality and educational care. The project is aimed at the renovation, maintenance and supply of necessary items of and to crèches in the Bot River community. An educational library has been established with the help of Big Box containers converted for storage and safely kept on Beaumont Wine Farm.

The Crèches supported in Bot River is Khulani Daycare Centre, Lucky Point Crèche, Angels United Crèche, ABC/123 Crèche, Kammaland Crèche and in the Thandi Community Crèche. Through this initiative the FNB Wines2Whales believes that we can make a sustainable difference, with your and our partners support, in many more communities along the Wines2Whales route and beyond.
