Join Helen Zille and 171 others who have written a letter of support for our Yzerfontein Sea Rescue base.
You can help Sea Rescue by using 67 minutes today and make a difference to those who use the sea off the West Coast and specifically Yzerfontein.
NSRI Yzerfontein is one of our newer rescue stations and has chalked up some impressive rescues. They have been very fortunate so far with sponsorship and volunteers committed to saving lives. But, they do not have a rescue base. They are operating out of containers and their rescue craft are exposed to the elements.
We have been trying for almost four years now to build a sea rescue base, and after many meetings with the municipality and other stakeholders, we are now at the stage for public comment. This runs to 20 July. There are two days left.
This is your opportunity to voice your support for the building of our new Sea Rescue boathouse. Your letters can be addressed to :
Swartland Municipality, Municipal Manager: Mr JJ Scholtz
1 Church Street
All letters need to contain your full name and contact details. Reference: Notice 126/11/12
you can email the letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass it on.
Your letter will make a difference.
What is Mandela Day?
Following the success of Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday celebrations in London’s Hyde Park in June 2008, it was decided that there could be nothing more fitting than to celebrate Mr Mandela’s birthday each year with a day dedicated to his life’s work and that of his charitable organisations, and to ensure his legacy continues forever.
The Mandela Day campaign message is simple: Mr Mandela gave 67 years of his life fighting for the rights of humanity. It has now become a tradition that people gives 67 minutes of their time, whether it’s supporting your chosen charity or serving your local community in his honour.
Mandela Day is a call to action for individuals – for people everywhere – to take responsibility for changing the world into a better place, one small step at a time, just as Mr Mandela did.
