Town Lodge Business Night Relay


Through this event we'd like to draw attention to the EP Child and Youth Care Centre (previously known as EP Children’s Home) which is situated just up the road from the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium and is the oldest of its kind in the Nelson Mandela Metro. 

Over 126 years ago the home was created to care for children, which due to societal challenges, could not be remain with their Family. 

Today the EP Children’s Home continues to provide Love, Care and Hope to orphaned and displaced youth in the Eastern Cape.  The Home offers holistic residential, therapeutic, educational, recreational and developmental programs to over 100 children. 

The Ray Mhlaba Skill Centre, an extension of the EP Children’s Home, also offers skills training to over a 100 more previously disadvantaged youth with the aim of creating employment opportunities for them.  Together the programs aim to develop these young people into well adjusted, productive citizens, and break the poverty cycle through education and skills training.

For more info on the Home and its programs please go to or click here to download our needs flyer.

More particularly, we are calling on all Teams and companies to get behind and support one of the children from the home who has been selected to take part in an exchange program to Germany and requires additional funding support for this once in a lifetime trip.

German Exchange Program

EP Child and Youth Care Centre are thrilled to have one of their young boys chosen to be an ambassador for his school and SA as part of a German Exchange Tour in 2017. 

Onathi, currently in Grade 11 at Lawson Brown High School, is very excited to travel for the first time In August this year. 

It is an incredible honour to be chosen to represent SA and we are so proud of Onathi for being able to overcome his personal challenges to achieve this.  The cost to travel however is incredibly high however and we are appealing to the public for assistance in this regard.  Donations of any amount are welcome and can be made through this event website as a donation to the home (see merchandising) in quantities of R100.
