SPAR Carols by Candlelight raised over R300 000 in 2020 and attracted 250 000 viewers from across the world, surpassing the R250 000 goal set. This year SPAR and Jacaranda FM aim to raise R300 000.

Jacaranda FM and the Good Morning Angels team together with SPAR will use the funds raised through digital donations to buy toys for 2 500 children from 11 homes across South Africa.

This year, the beneficiaries are: SOS Children’s Village – Rustenburg Village, North West; SOS Children’s Village – Nelspruit Village, Mpumalanga; SOS Children’s Village – Pietermaritzburg Village, Kwa Zulu Natal; SOS Children’s Village – Sekhukhune Social Centre, Limpopo; SOS Children’s Village – Cape Town Village, Western Cape; Child Welfare Tshwane, Gauteng; Child Welfare Midrand, Gauteng; Abraham Kriel Kinderhuis, Gauteng; Look Forward Orphanage, Gauteng; Juno Aurora Home, Gauteng; The Hanna Charity, Gauteng

The concert is free to enjoy for all, but SPAR and Jacaranda FM kindly ask fans to express their goodwill and donate towards this incredibly touching cause. All funds raised will ensure that the Good Morning Angels team can gift vulnerable children across South Africa news toys of their own.

To join SPAR Carols by Candlelight presented by Jacaranda FM visit jacarandafm.com, diarise Thursday 2 December, and stock up on snacks and a charitable spirit. The event will live stream from 5pm and will be hosted by Martin Bester and the Breakfast team with a re-broadcast scheduled for Friday, December 24 at 5pm.
