Home of Hope is busy getting ready to switch on their Christmas lights for 2022; they are excited to share the lights with the community and hope to raise funds for the work they do in supporting children.


Table View, South Africa (01 December 2022) – Growing up, we would pile into the car armed with snacks and head out into the neighbourhoods famous for having lights up on their houses. Every year, the same houses would put on a show and delight neighbours with their Christmas lights. Home of Hope does this every year as a way to raise funds for the work they do.

Home of Hope is a non-profit organisation that cares for abused and abandoned children in South Africa, especially those suffering from Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) – permanent brain damage caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol.

The home is based in Table View, Cape Town. They welcome visitors during the festive season, to visit the house and see the Christmas lights. They are busy getting everything set up so that from the 16th of December, they will have the lightest and brightest house on the street.

“Every year we try to go bigger and brighter, you definitely need to pop by. Our lights will be on from the 16th – 30th of December 2022 from 20:00-22:00 at 3 Fairbridge road, Table View.”

If you were looking for a house to drive past, add Home of Hope to your list! If you would like to find out more about the home or support the work they do, you can check out Facebook or the website.

“Our yearly Christmas lights are our largest fundraising event. Not only do we absolutely love Christmas lights, we love bringing our community together.

This event is an opportunity for us to create more awareness about our organisation and raise much-needed funds for our children and young adults.

Our Christmas lights will go on from the 16th- 30th of December 2022 from 20:00-22:00.

ENTRANCE IS FREE! Donations are welcome, all donations will go directly towards the running cost of our organisation.”
