Motor show raises R116 000 for charity
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.
