In 2000, Lifestyle’s third year of the annual Garden Show, the principal of the Lifestyle College approached Sadie Cutland of CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation about helping to raise CHOC’s profile while simultaneously helping to raise money for this worthy cause.
Prior to 2000, Lifestyle had been involved with other charities, but CHOC was identified as a most worthy and needy cause. “It is all about people working together having the same ideals, same goals, and the same commitments”, which is why the CHOC and Lifestyle relationship developed and has subsequently blossomed into a partnership raising over R1 000 000 since the start of the project.
For the 16 consecutive years, CHOC and Lifestyle Home Garden partnered together, raising funds from the sale of the annual Garden Show portfolio. The funds raised from the sale of the portfolio were used to purchase medical supplies and equipment, provide transport and support to ensure that appointments and treatment sessions are attended and to upgrade and maintain the CHOC home. Lifestyle Home Garden has additionally provided continuous support to the CHOC House Garden, helping to create the wonderful ambience by donating plants and seedlings.
