Earlier this year one of our rescue vehicles got stuck in the sand on Muizenberg beach. It happened to be during a public event so there were hundreds of people around and within minutes a video landed on Facebook and went viral. All sorts of comments followed.
Marc Dunster and the group “Western Cape 4×4 and Difflock” immediately got in touch with us and stretched out their hand of friendship. They invited us to bring our crew around to enjoy a practical training day with them. It was a really positive email and included a whole host of free offers.
Thank you Marc for reaching out, thank you Thys de Jager and Team Offroad for the free 4×4 training and recovery course, Thys van Eck of Motolek Stikland for kindly offering to assess the vehicle, Denielle de Kock of ALCO for the sponsored recovery kit, Wynand Blom of Saddles for the meal, Oom Johann Tyre Viljoen of 1st Alignment Centre for the use of his vehicle and Charles Duckett of Windhoek Farm for the use of his premises.
Our rescuers needed rescuing and we couldn’t have asked for a kinder group to come to our aid.
As one of their members said “Great day, great gesture, great people.”
