Nicole Runs for Woodside Special Care Centre

Personal message

My name is Nicole Richardson and I am taking part in the TOM Virtual Charity Challenge to raise funds to support Woodside Special Care Centre.

With my crowdfunding campaign launched on BackaBuddy, I hope to raise a minimum of R2000 towards the work they do with their residents who are profoundly intellectually and physically disabled.

If you can, please be so kind as to donate to my campaign and cheer me on during the virtual event.

If you are unable to contribute, please share my campaign with your friends and loved ones.

Woodside Special Care Centre

Woodside Special Care Centre Logo

Woodside Special Care Centre is a residential home caring for 82 profoundly intellectually and physically disabled residents and is situated in Rondebosch East, Cape Town, South Africa. Since its inception in 1976 Woodside has worked diligently towards building a home of safety and security for its residents, all of whom require specialized care and who are unable to remain within their family units. Woodside also fosters children who are wards of the court – these are children who have been neglected or abandoned by their families.

The key services we provide are:

24 hour professional nursing care


Occupational therapy

Speech and language therapy

Respite care (daily or hourly relief care to families with multi-disabled children)

Our main aim is to provide holistic care and stimulation to our profoundly multi-disabled residents and offer hope and help to discouraged families. We also aim to equip our Centre with the necessary materials and equipment which will enable our staff to operate at a high level of professionalism in all spheres of the services we offer to our residents. Woodside is a place of encouragement, inspiration and constant training for its dedicated staff. With continuous training the staff will be able to provide up-to-date care and stimulation to our residents. The service levels at Woodside are of a very high standard and comprise of a professional administration under the guidance of a general manager, a professional nursing sister and qualified staff nurses, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist and a fundraising and public relations department.
