George Herald - Auto Dealer - - Auto Dealer -

The Knys­na mo­tor s­how held in A­pril and spon­so­red by San­lam Pri­va­te We­alth, was on­ce a­gain a hu­ge success. The or­ga­ni­sa­ti­on was im­pec­ca­ble and a high s­tan­dard of a­we­so­me cars and mo­tor­cy­cles we­re on dis­play. It was at­ten­ded by a re­cord cro­wd of mo­re than 8 000 pe­op­le.

The or­ga­ni­sers are de­lig­h­ted t­hat af­ter ac­coun­ting for the mo­tor s­how ex­pen­ses, R116 000 could be do­na­ted to cha­ri­ty.

The c­ha­ri­ties t­hat be­ne­fit are: Knys­na and Sed­ge­field Hos­pi­ce, Knys­na A­ni­mal Wel­fa­re, E-PAP (NPO fee­ding sche­me for un­der­pri­vi­le­ged child­ren), Fam­sa (NPO spe­ci­a­li­sing in re­la­ti­ons­hip coun­sel­ling), E­pi­lep­sy, Ba­di­sa (a child pro­tecti­on or­ga­ni­sa­ti­on), C­han­ge for C­han­ge (look­ing af­ter a group of des­ti­tu­te fa­mi­lies) and the Sea Ca­dets.

“This do­na­ti­on co­mes at a ti­me w­hen all c­ha­ri­ties are un­der tre­men­dous fun­ding pres­su­res to meet the gro­wing need for their ser­vi­ces. O­ver the past eig­ht y­e­ars the Knys­na mo­tor s­how has do­na­ted in ex­cess of R500 000 to the­se c­ha­ri­ties,” says Pe­ter Pre­to­ri­us, chair­man of the Gar­den Rou­te mo­tor club and or­ga­ni­ser of the Knys­na mo­tor s­how.

“This do­na­ti­on from the pro­ceeds of the Knys­na mo­tor s­how has been ma­de pos­si­ble through the sup­port of our spon­sors, all the par­ti­ci­pants who dis­play­ed their cars and mo­tor­cy­cles. We al­so want to thank the mo­tor tra­de, the pu­blic t­hat ca­me from a­cross South A­fri­ca and the de­di­ca­ti­on of mem­bers of the Gar­den Rou­te mo­tor club. We owe them all a big thanks.

“We look for­ward to build on this success w­hen next y­e­ar’s Knys­na mo­tor s­how will be held on 28 A­pril.”
