Two Tring Lions, Sandra and Robin, have developed links with a township Early Years Centre in Hermanus, South Africa and visit regularly. This centre has been established through the input of visitors to the region, combining with local companies and supportive individuals. Funding is provided through a Trust, which is a registered charity in the UK. In the last few months the number of children in the school has increased from 150 to over 200.

Tring Lions have been gathering relevant books and Sandra and Robin took them out on their recent visit as part of their ongoing commitment to the development of the Yomelalani Centre. The school were delighted with the books and started using them with some of the children almost immediately. Others were placed in book corners available in each classroom. The centre is becoming a key resource for the area and Robin and Sandra were part of a group providing an after-school craft club in the Centre for local children.
