For the fifth consecutive year Kia South Africa, which is imported by the Motus group, has donated a Picanto to the Beeld Children’s fund. The Kia Picanto 1.0 Start will once again be the grand prize in the Fund’s annual raffle, which is supported by radio station Radio sonder grense (RSG 100-104fm)

Since its inception in 1977, the Beeld Children’s Fund has helped more than 200 000 children, in need by focussing on programmes that aid development of the body, soul and spirit. This year the fund aims to make a difference to the lives of at least 6500 children.

“These programmes serve the needs of a wide variety of vulnerable children. It allows us to assist traumatised children in obtaining therapy and for children from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend kindergartens and pre-schools as well as helping the homeless youth to obtain care and accommodation and to complete their schooling,” explains Adrie van Staden, Executive Officer of the Beeld Children’s Fund

Apart from the grand prize of a Kia Picanto Start, there are also a number of bonus prizes on offer. For every donation of R30, donors receive one entry into the raffle. Donations can be made via an EFT into the Beeld Children’s Fund account, ABSA, cheque account 2840 157 329. Be sure to include your name and cell number as the reference and an SMS within 48 hours will confirm your entry. Entries close at midnight on 5 November 2022.
