Tent for Bontebok NP

Unread postby MATTHYS » Sun Oct 19, 2014 2:53 pm

The VHRs thank ALL our forumites :gflower: , who via monthly and other donations and by supporting fundraisers made it possible for us to tick off an item on Bontebok NP's wishlist and donate a tent to them.

Previous holiday- and other activities/programmes were lots of fun :D :

Programmes (Kids in Parks, holiday prgrammes for kids and adults and exhibitions, etc) in winter and high summer and harsh weather conditions, not so much fun without having a sheltered area to do this.

A special thanks also to the 4x4 community :gflower: (and to JenB for inspiring them :clap: ) for their very generous donations and to George from Tentco for giving us a very good deal (and to Sparks for inspiring George :wink: to do so :D ) for the purchase of the tent.

Thank you Willie Engelbrecht (Vice-Chairperson, NEC, SANParks Honorary Rangers) :gflower: for following up on this project and Marloise (People & Conservation Bontebok National Park) for her feedback and the photos provided :D

The tent 'in action' !
