Corporate Social Responsibility
As part of our CSR programme, we assisted with the rebuilding of the overcrowded and poverty-stricken Sunbeam crèche in the Westlake community of Cape Town, transforming the crèche into an early childhood development centre. The design took over two years to complete, during which time we drove the process of getting the plans approved by council, and raised the funds required to build the facility and surrounding structures. This new facility will be used as a model for further crèche facilities in neighbouring communities as we continue to assist with further roll-out of this project.
Additionally, we collaborate annually with the Santa Shoebox Project in order to deliver gifts and necessities to the children of Sunbeam crèche, where we also host a yearly Christmas party for all the children and staff of the nursery school. Similarly, Swindon hosts a Christmas party each year in KwaZulu-Natal for House of Love and Hope.
We also support an underprivileged community soccer team called Bushbucks, by sponsoring their uniform, kit and other necessities.
Swindon is also a proud sponsor of the Woman's Property Network (WPN), which raises funds for student bursaries awarded to previously disadvantaged young women who are passionate about entering the commercial property industry.
