Serv­ing so­ci­ety self­lessly

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - COMMENT -

ON SUN­DAY March 11, the Cape Town Cy­cle Tour took place in which more than 30 000 cy­clists from around the coun­try par­tic­i­pated to raise funds for char­ity.

As this is one of the great­est events in Cape Town, the World Mis­sion So­ci­ety Church of God vol­un­teers sup­ported this event.

More than 100 vol­un­teers gath­ered in Perdek­loof, Si­mon’s Town, at 4am and pre­pared their wa­ter sta­tion.

The cy­clists were met with cheers and singing, and en­cour­age­ment to con­tinue the race un­til the end.

The World Mis­sion So­ci­ety Church of God vol­un­teers have be­come well known to the or­gan­is­ers of the event, who have praised the vol­un­teers, who pas­sion­ately cheer from the be­gin­ning of the race un­til the end – with­out any rest.

This group is well known in­ter­na­tion­ally and re­ceived the UK Queen’s Award in 2016.
