This past weekend saw some of the members of the Meeulanders MCC gathering at three of the local supermarkets to persuade the public to donate non perishable food items for distribution to those in need. This had been scheduled for mid September but was cancelled due to the sad, untimely passing of our President Divi de Vries.
Unfortunately Janet and I were unable to attend or assist in this event due to a prior commitment but I have spoken to Craig and I have seen the photos, some of which I will show you, and this turned out to be a very successful collection thanks to the club members who were willing to donate their time and to those members of the public who generously donated food items.
Outside the Pick 'n Pay in Langebaan Mall, who would not donate food when confronted by Steve?!
Two of the ladies and the trollies get filled up, eventually six trollies were filled to the brim at this collection point. This was the only mall that allowed motorcycles to be taken inside.
Meanwhile those worthy members outside the Pick 'n Pay in Vredenburg were also on the go, they eventually managed to collect 5 trollies full of food.
