NON-PROFIT organisation, Litres for Education, handed over R17 000 to the top five beneficiaries in Pietermaritzburg namely the PMB Mental Health
Society, Carter High School, Lifeline and Rape Crisis Centre PMB, the SOS Children’s Village and
iThemba Trust Sweetwaters last Wednesday at the Engen Basil Bure Convenience Centre.

These five beneficiaries have highlighted as the top five supporters of the Litres for Education programme.

Initiated four years ago by Graeme and Zelda Scheuitz, who own the BP Garage on Moore Road in Durban, the programme aims at taking 10 cents from every litre of petrol filled and donating it back to worthy causes.

“So far we have got 25 service stations in Kwa-Zulu Natal that are implementing the Litres for Education initiative and are trying to get more so that we can take this programme national,” said Scheuitz. The programme is completely free of charge for the consumer who still gets every litre of petrol for the same price confirmed Scheuitz.

“We just want to get as many petrol stations on board as possible because South Africans go through a lot of fuel and if you think about 10 cents per every litre filled we can raise a lot of money to give back to the community,” said Scheuitz.

Scheuitz said that it has taken a lot of time and effort but that there is great potential for the project to grow and make a real impact on the lives of people who need it.
