directaxis people volunteering

Volunteerism is a significant part of the DirectAxis culture and our staff are always eager to serve their communities.

We regularly host events such as fundraising initiatives, awareness drives, and an annual initiative where we pack food and make comfort hampers. We’re proud to be involved in the following:

Turfhall Cheshire Home

We’ve had up to 100 staff volunteer at the Turfhall Cheshire Home for the physically disabled. Some scrubbed floors while others played games, gave pedicures and chatted with the residents. Others were on kitchen duty and the rest took care of the entertainment. We’re proud of our staff for taking time out of their busy schedules to help change lives. 

gold Youth 

Our Human Resources team and other managers set up mock interviews with the youth from our CSI partner, gold-youth, to give them the tools that will allow them to navigate through the world of work. We believe that passing on our knowledge and skills empowers others to build better lives for themselves. 

Winter Drive

During the winter months, the homeless need extra care. To alleviate their plight we packed over 1 000 comfort packs and distributed these to five shelters in the Western Cape. We also donated blankets and tinned food to various homeless shelters. 

World Hunger Day

Our staff enjoy getting involved in our annual Rise Against Hunger event. Our record number of meals packed in a day stands at 20 800. In 2017, Scarra Ntubeni and Huw Joes of the DHL Western Cape Province rugby team and Jack Parow, one of South Africa’s favourite musicians, joined us in packing meals. 

Sport for Good

It was a star-studded day at the Langa Cheshire Home for the disabled. The Cape Town City FC, Western Province Rugby and the Cape Cobra cricket teams joined our staff in sprucing up the home. The players and our dedicated staff volunteers did chores, washed windows, gardened and put up curtains.

Children’s homes

There’s an overflow of staff ready and willing to volunteer for Children’s causes. We’ve been able to supply our volunteers with valuable equipment to help the children’s homes that they support which includes Leliebloem and Christine Revell. 

Disability Drive

Each year we assist organisations for disabled persons, particularly places where our staff regularly volunteer. The most recent recipients of our once-off grant are Turfhall Cheshire Home, Langa Cheshire Home and The League of Friends of the Blind (LOFOB). 

Lockdown 2020

We donated R254 000 in equipment and supplies to feeding schemes around Cape Town during the 2020 crisis. Our staff raised a further R88 000 to support the community with food parcels.
