SOUTH Coast Hospice received linen for its in-patient unit from two business houses in Gauteng - Suzuki and Chrysalis Linen.

They were part of a Suzuki challenge where the sales manager Brendon­ Carpenter was tasked to test drive a Suzuki 750 bakkie, that is about to be launched, load its 750kg capacity to the limit, and drive it for 750km on only­ R750 worth of fuel.

Carpenter chose Hospice as the beneficiary of the challenge in which the two companies pledged two dishwashers and 14 buckets of paint.

Carpenter sourced a beneficiary on the internet and chose Hospice as the deserving beneficiary.

Hospice fund-raiser BT King said they were fortunate to be chosen as the beneficiary and thanked Suzuki and Chrysalis Linen for the donation.

“We really appreciate the donation­ and would like to thank Brendon for taking up the challenge,” said King.
