Dates: March 2021

Theme: Sneakers & Slippers Day for R20 per person

Contact: Cindy Jackman

Each student Team Leader, representing their school, sells the concept of each student having the option (not compulsory) to buy a ticket for R20 on or before the day in exchange for a sticker.  The R20 is the same  price as buying a loaf of bread for someone which shows the value of a loaf of bread.  As the students enter the school premises on the event day, they get to wear their purchased sticker and their SNEAKERS OR SLIPPERS for that one day at school. Please email Cindy for the details.  This concept can be done to earn community hours.

Theme: 947 Ride Joburg - Team Village Safe Haven

947 Ride Joburg is an incredible platform for recognising non-profit organisations and making it possible to raise funds for the extraordinary work that they do. COVID-19 has brought unexpected and unforeseen challenges that have made it nearly impossible for countless charity foundations to raise the necessary funds to stay afloat. 947 Ride Joburg created the Ride for a Purpose initiative to support selected non-profit organisations by inviting 500 riders to join us on an outride to celebrate life and cycling while raising funds for a worthy cause.
