WITH the KAP Sani2c biker’s race event just four weeks away, many contributors have showed interest including Lynford School in Ixopo.

A relationship between the race and Lynford School can be traced back to when race founder Glen Haw who was then a parent at the school, was in charge of raising money for the school to keep it accessible to the wider Ixopo community.

Lynford school principal, Tim Botha said that the support received from parents, staff and pupils through the event were appreciated.

“We remain tremendously appreciative of our partnership with Haw and his team as well as other riders who continuously support our school. There is no doubt that our continued success as a school is aided by the continued success of the event,” said Botha.

Botha said that the money raised at previous events was used to develop the Lynford Trust Fund which enables the school to provide for 25% of the student body.

Botha said that the partnership of the school with KAP Sani2c has given previously disadvantaged children the opportunity to attend the school.

“The funding has helped ensure that we are able to attract and keep a team of highly qualified, experienced and motivated staff, the most important asset in the education of our children. A large portion of the funds are allocated to various building projects in our school,” Botha said adding that the schools was currently in the process of building a new school hall.

The KAP Sani2c has many other beneficiaries that contribute annually every year. “The support from the riders and the endorsement by all partners means that the KAP Sani2c continues to be at the forefront of community growth and development,” said Botha.
