Lake Farm Centre is a non-profit organisation that depends on the support of annual sponsors, our own fundraising and supporters to continue with services.
Our main sponsors include companies, service organisations and the local businesses and we list here the most recent sponsors:-
VW -go blue, Bukani Print, adidas, Rotary, Zwartkops Round Table, AMB Holdings, Nedbank, Achilles and other sponsors listed in our annual Charity Run Sponsors Souvenir magazine.

We are greatful for the government Department of Social Services that subsidizes us, but it covers only about 40% of the total running costs.
We are also greatful that The LOTTO grant distribution fund supports us. They allocate funds for specific needs but it is also sporadically and not gauranteed.
