Knysna-Plett Herald - - Nuus | News - – Pe­ter P­re­to­ri­us, chair of Gar­den Rou­te Mo­tor Club and mo­tor s­how or­ga­ni­ser

A host of lo­cal cha­ri­ties re­cent­ly be­ne­fi­ted from the phe­no­me­nal success of the Knys­na Mo­tor S­how held e­ar­lier t­his y­e­ar, which d­rew a re­cord cro­wd of mo­re than 8 000 pe­op­le.

We are de­lig­h­ted to ad­vi­se that af­ter ac­coun­ting for the ex­pen­ses of the mo­tor s­how, held on 29 A­pril, we we­re a­ble to do­na­te R116 000 to the fol­lo­wing cha­ri­ties: Knys­na Sed­ge­field Hos­pi­ce; Knys­na A­ni­mal Wel­fa­re So­cie­ty; e’Pap fee­ding sche­me for un­der­pri­vi­le­ged child­ren; Fa­mi­lies SA; E­pi­lep­sy SA-Knys­na; Ba­di­sa child pro­tecti­on or­ga­ni­sa­ti­on; C­han­ge for C­han­ge (look­ing af­ter a group of des­ti­tu­te fa­mi­lies); and the Sea Ca­dets. T­his do­na­ti­on has co­me at a ti­me w­hen all the­se cha­ri­ties are un­der tre­men­dous fun­ding pres­su­res to meet the e­ver-gro­wing need for their ser­vi­ces. O­ver the past eig­ht y­e­ars the Knys­na Mo­tor S­how has do­na­ted mo­re than R500 000 to the­se cha­ri­ties.

T­his do­na­ti­on, from the pro­ceeds of the s­how, has on­ly been ma­de pos­si­ble through the sup­port of our spon­sors, all the par­ti­ci­pants who dis­play­ed their cars and mo­tor­cy­cles, the mo­tor tra­de, the pu­blic who ca­me from a­cross South A­fri­ca, and the de­di­ca­ti­on of mem­bers from the Gar­den Rou­te Mo­tor Club. We sa­lu­te all of them with a big thanks.

We look for­ward to buil­ding on t­his success w­hen next y­e­ar’s mo­tor s­how is held on Sun­day 28 A­pril 2019.
