About 20 girls from Thomas’ Clapham School in London recently donated 20 Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycles to the Wildlands Conservation Trust Tree-preneur Project run from the Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.
The girls raised the funds for the bicycles by each undertaking to raise one hundred pounds. The main driver for the fundraiser being a bicycle rally. The school was then put in touch with Qhubeka’s partner, World Bicycle Relief which arranged for the girls to attend the handover while in South Africa on a hockey tour.
The Wildlands Conservation Trust Tree-preneur Project was introduced into communities in the Cape with the help of Spier and PSG Konsult Corporate. The aim of the program is to support rural and township communities through tree and vegetable growing projects that are rewarded in the form of Qhubeka Buffalo Bicycles or other supplies as needed.
