Cresset House in Midrand, Gauteng, is a registered NPO that provides residential and work facilities for some 60 adults with intellectual disabilities. Ranging in age from 18 to 72, the residents live as extended families in six large houses on the property with the support of House Leaders and Co-workers and are stimulated through engagement in various workshops including baking, vegetable gardening, card making, sewing and woodwork.

Water is a significant cost in the running of Cresset House, despite some eight million litres of water per annum being recycled via wetland reed beds for use in garden irrigation, municipal water for domestic use and vegetable garden irrigation costs some R25, 000.00/month. The installation of a ring water main pipe connecting the properties 3 boreholes to a water treatment plant will save some R20, 000/month (R240, 000.00/annum).

The Rotary Clubs of Kyalami and Knights Pendragon have joined forces with Mix FM to assist this essential community facility in the raising of the R292,000.00 (Two hundred and ninety two thousand Rand) required for their project financing.

Should any plumbing businesses be prepared to assist with donations of material, equipment or labour for this project, these contributions will be gratefully accepted and reduce the cash requirement to execute this essential project.
