Lydia's fairytale Matric dance
This fairytale began when Joburg came together to help Lydia. Her mother had a simple request, to help her get her to the Matric dance, and boy did the 947 Breakfast Club come to the party...
Watch as she had the most luxurious day, and stepped out in style for her Matric Dance...
Thank you to all the generous people and companies that contributed to make her night so special!
We’d like to convey our heartfelt thanks to the following:
