Cycle for charity

It was all smiles on Friday September 8, when Fish Hoek High School welcomed the team from the Thomson Smillie Foundation, a non-profit, pictured, who cycled more than 2000km in 12 days to raise funds for the school. The cyclists left Pont Drift border post on the Limpopo River on Monday August 28 and covered an average of 180km a day to reach Cape Town. The foundation’s education programme supports disadvantaged children.
The Thomson Smillie Foundation team received a hero’s welcome with cheer and song as they arrived at Fish Hoek High School. Peter Thomson, from the foundation, encouraged pupils to build a better South Africa together. Red wristbands were handed out to the pupils to serve as a reminder to make a difference.
