IN the true spirit of the festive season, when love and caring goes hand in hand with giving and sharing gifts, Umzumbe Xtreme organiser Cameron McBean handed over a R20 000 cheque on Tuesday 15 December, to Reinhardt's Place in Pumula.

Reinhardt’s Place is a permanent centre for people with multi-disabilities and is a formally registered non-profit organisation caring for all races and ages.

Umzumbe Xtreme takes place each year in July as part of the Sardine Festival, and sees hard-core, internationally acclaimed, enduro riders battle against the elements and technical tracks. Realising how fortunate they are as able-bodied persons, the organisers decided to choose Reinhardt’s as their charity of choice.

“None of this would be possible without the support of the sponsors and community support,” said McBean.
“I would like to make special mention of Klint Mills and his team from Powasol Xtreme Events as well and Bronson Louw (track director), Ugu South Coast Tourism and all sponsors and farm owners involved with the event.
“There is a lot of volunteer energy committed to this enduro and that all goes a long way in helping us reach our goals – such as handing over this cheque to Reinhardt’s Place.”

Ugu South Coast Tourism marketing Nikki Tilley congratulated the organisers for their commitment and support of local communities and charities.
“When we get involved with events, we like to ensure that there is a benefit for all and the R20 000 raised will no doubt go a long way in assisting this highly reputable NGO with much-needed maintenance, repairs and support,” said Tilley.
