Managing Director and CEO of ICBL, Ingrid Innes, spoke about how it felt to bring joy to the lives of the children who attended:

When the kids arrived, you realised why we celebrate Christmas and why good people, friends of ICBL and staff give so generously. It was an afternoon for kids, about kids and with kids. It was amazing to see the looks on their faces when they were called up on the stage to sit with Santa and for that moment, that minute, they know that they were unique and special and perfect, and that makes it all worthwhile.”

“As a company we are committed to giving back throughout the year, doing so through a number of channels and via a number of initiatives. This is one of those channels where our staff get to play a key role, making it one of the more gratifying exercises for us”, Mrs. Innes added.
