April 2010 Fundraiser

Pedalling for Peddie: ‘One Thousand kilometres from Hamburg to Cape Town'

HIV and AIDS – We are all in it together...

On Friday 23rd of April 2010, we welcomed Kidzpositive’s Director and Dr Paul Roux and five members of the Kidzpositive team in Hamburg. We invited them to the Heritage Site where over a hundred community members had gathered to attend the launch of the Pedalling for Peddie fundraiser.

From the Kidzpositive Website:
'We are riding from Hamburg in the Eastern Cape Province to Cape Town to connect the needs of a rural service with the resources in a city and to symbolize a link between sister enterprises: The Keiskamma Trust and the Kidzpositive Fund’ Click here

AIDS councillor Eunice Mangwane was the MC that evening. She scheduled a nice programme for the Kidzpositive team with the Traditional Dance Group, the Music Academy, the Capoeira group and the Gospel Choir.

At the end of the ceremony, the Art Project handed the fundraiser’s banner over the Paul Roux’s team: a 2m long tapestry designed by Nozeti Makhubalo depicting the road that the team was going to ride on from Hamburg to Cape Town.

After a well-deserved quiet Saturday, the Kidzpositive team departed from Hamburg on their bikes on Sunday 25th of April at 8am, supported by Keiskamma Trust’s Founding Director Carol Baker-Hofmeyr, and other members of the community.
