The call is out: soft toys are needed in support of the annual ToyRun or simply exchange a R5 coin for a raffle ticket and stand the chance of winning a brand new bike.

These activities are all in aid of children in the Nelson Mandela Metropole.

ToyRun raffle tickets are available on Saturday and Sunday mornings at the entrance of the Pick ‘n Pay Penford in Uitenhage as well as from ToyRun PE committee members.

The 2015 ToyRun will be held in all major cities across the country on Sunday, November 29th. All bikers are invited to participate.

“Your R5 donation will make a difference in the lives of many underprivileged children. So, thank you to all who already have supported us in helping to help the children of Uitenhage,” said André Potgieter, president of Wild Horse Motorcycle Club, who is responsible for overseeing the raffle ticket sales.

Among the beneficiaries of the 2014 ToyRun was Winterberg primary school in Uitenhage, which received a whopping R65 000 worth of food vouchers, uniforms and teaching aids for the school.

“In partnership with ToyRun PE, Uitenhage Super Steel and Buco repaired the roof and ceilings of the school which were damaged as a result of vandalism and theft.

“The money was raised primarily by selling of raffle tickets at Pick ’n Pay Penford. We are very proud of the people of Uitenhage, their support is unbelievable.

“The previous year (2013) they contributed in raising R60 000 which was donated to CMR Uitenhage,” said Potgieter.

)Should you wish to participate in selling raffle tickets please contact André Potgieter on 082 770 9495
