Thank you for your support in SAPS fund raising!

Hi everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude to all the individuals and organizations who have generously contributed to the fund raising efforts for SAPS (South African Police Service).

Firstly, we embarked on a fund raising campaign for an Inverter and battery project, which was later taken care of by the Government (National Public Works). They informed us that they had allocated funds to address electricity issues in Police Stations, Schools, and Hospitals. Therefore, we shifted our focus to another pressing matter.

We then turned our attention to the security issue at our local Police station, specifically the need to build a wall around it. However, as we proceeded with the fund raising, we were informed that the funds previously allocated by the Government for the Inverter and Battery project no longer existed.

But here’s the good news! We have received confirmation that Solar Tech Solutions, a member of our community and the Business Chamber of Velddrif, has generously sponsored a significant portion of the project, including the installation. Additionally, we have collected more than enough money to complete the project. The installation is scheduled to take place in December, and we will be coordinating with Captain Borstelmann to ensure everything goes smoothly.

On another note, the GPF (Greater Police Forum) has indicated that they will not be participating in this weekend’s fundraising event. However, I would like to request everyone’s support in making the Poeding sales the last official sales of 2023. We have just received word from SPAR, who kindly sponsored 30 x jelly and 12 liters of custard for the event.

Looking ahead, we will be discussing our plans for next year’s fund raising projects. However, I must confess that we will be excluding pancakes and poedings, as they are not doing any good for my waistline!

Once again, thank you all for your incredible support and generosity. It is heartwarming to see our community come together to make a positive impact. Let’s continue working together to make a difference!

Warm regards, Chairman Johnny Da Silva
