Wrapping up a supportive year

12 Dec 2019

For many of us, December is when we look back over the past year to take stock of what we have achieved, what mistakes we made, and what lessons we learnt. From that, we begin to look forward and decide what we want to achieve, what mistakes we want to avoid repeating, and what lessons we want to put into practise in the New Year.


At the last support session of 2019, the Witkoppen moms were given the opportunity to talk about how they have experienced the support group over the year, what they learnt, what they enjoyed, and what they would change in the future to make it even better.


To make the last session extra special, the moms received gifts for them and their little ones to take home and enjoy. Cuddlers also donated nappies, baby wipes, food hampers and sandwiches to each of the moms.


Murray Booth, Marketing Executive at Cuddlers, hopes the moms take all the skills that they have learnt in these sessions into 2020 and beyond, and use them to their full advantage.


“We want to wish the moms a wonderful festive season, and we so look forward to seeing many of them back in the New Year to continue their journey with us. To the moms who are starting their own new journeys next year, we want to wish them the very best, and hope that they seize as many opportunities as possible,” said Booth.


Fhumulani Makhera, the social auxiliary worker at Witkoppen Clinic, believes beautiful things happen when women come together in support of each other.


“It has been a very successful year of support for our moms. We have seen them grow in confidence and strength with each session and we hope this momentum carries on into the New Year, with many more great sessions to come,” said Makhera.


Support sessions are sponsored by Cuddlers, Witkoppen Clinic and the Fourways Review, under the banner of Caxton Cares. The sessions are bi-monthly on Thursdays, with the next session taking place on 23 January 2020 at 10:00am at the Witkoppen Clinic, 105 William Nicol Drive, Fourways.
