Mandela Day: Christmas in July in aid of the Santa Shoebox Project

18 Jul - 18 Jul 2019


09:00 - 18:00


Centre Court, Canal Walk Shopping Centre



Do your part this Mandela Day and serve your 67 minutes!

Canal Walk will host the annual celebration honoring Madiba’s desire to unite all South Africa’s and to do good. The Centre Court will be transformed into a hive of activity and early festive season cheer with the packing of thousands of Santa Shoeboxes.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to pack thousands of boxes filled with toiletries, sweets, clothing, school supplies and stationery, books and a toy for underprivileged children within South Africa and Namibia. 

Children age 13 and younger are welcome to register and serve their 67 minutes, by assisting our box folding teams.

Get involved

All sessions are now full, however if we do have any no-shows we will accommodate walk-in registrations accordingly. You can also make a difference by purchasing a Virtual Santa Shoebox here, alternatively registrations to pledge your own Santa Shoebox open on 1 September.
