Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Graaff-reinet -

GRAAFF-REINET – In Au­gust, du­ring the an­nu­al in­ter-schools com­pe­ti­ti­on in Graaff-reinet, U­ni­on High School laun­ched a Trol­ley­dash fun­drai­ser in part­ners­hip with the lo­cal Pick n Pay.

Hund­reds of tic­kets we­re sold o­ver the fol­lo­wing mont­hs and on T­hurs­day af­ter­noon, Oc­to­ber 12, the three lucky win­ners we­re an­noun­ced.

The Gra­de 6 le­ar­ner that rai­sed the most funds, Da­vid King­horn, was a­war­ded a he­li­cop­ter flig­ht for four pe­op­le, spon­so­red by Fly Ka­roo.

On Sun­day af­ter­noon at 17:00, the three win­ners, Lau­ren Wad­de­low, Nor­man Kroon and An­ja Oe­lof­sen and a very ex­ci­ted Gra­de 6G class and their pa­rents, gat­he­red at Pick n Pay to ta­ke part in the trol­ley-dash.

Po­si­ti­ons we­re dra­wn, as t­he­re was a 1 mi­nu­te, 2 mi­nu­te and a 3-mi­nu­te dash.

With the en­coura­ge­ment of the Gra­de 6 class, win­ners we­re run­ning through the ais­les of Pick n Pay, fil­ling their trol­leys with w­ha­te­ver their he­art de­si­red.

C­heryl Wad­da­low from Pick n Pay then al­so al­lo­wed Mrs Ger­ber, class te­a­cher of the Gra­de 6Gs, with the very ex­ci­ted en­coura­ge­ment of her class, to ha­ve a 30 se­cond dash for an end-of-y­e­ar class par­ty. Eats and drinks we­re al­so of­fe­red to all who at­ten­ded.

W­hat a fun-fil­led fun­drai­ser this was for all in­vol­ved.

U­ni­on High wis­hes to thank Pick n Pay and Fly Ka­roo Air Ser­vi­ces for their ge­n­ero­si­ty in spon­so­ring pri­zes and look for­ward to ma­king this an an­nu­al e­vent.

An­ja Oe­lof­sen, with the help of Ross S­tan­ley, won the 1-mi­nu­te dash, but had no pro­blem in fil­ling her trol­ley with goodies to the va­lue of mo­re than R6 000! Some for her­self, some on mom Noe­leen’s in­structi­on, and some for cha­ri­ty.

Nor­man Kroon and his wi­fe, Jen­ny, won the 2-mi­nu­te dash and de­ci­ded to do­na­te the con­tents of their trol­ley to Vuy­a­ni Sa­fe Ha­ven.
