Feeding Scheme at Cheshire Home
In February 2008, Southey Holdings employee Norman Naidu and four of his friends decided to initiate a feeding scheme at the Cheshire Home for the Disabled in Durban. They began with personal monthly contributions of whatever they could afford. The scheme grew, as did the membership of their support group, now numbering 16.
Through their constant involvement with Cheshire Home for the Disabled, it was noticed that many of the wheelchairs being used were in need of replacement. Norman approached Southey Holdings CEO Barry Wickins for a donation and as a result they were able to purchase 9 new wheelchairs. This is just one example of the many contributions Southey Holdings makes annually toward corporate social investment.
