Residents of the South Coast will, no doubt, remember reports of a missing paddler whose kayak & belongings were found on the banks of the Umzimkulu River at the river mouth in June this year.
What many don’t know is that the missing Kayaker was Vic Pretorius, a paddler whose ambition it was to try and raise R70,000 for the SPCA Lower South Coast & Harmony Hill Charities by paddling 70 kms to celebrate his 70th Birthday.
Sadly he was not to see his dream to fruition & he lost his life doing what he loved, paddling.
Vic’s wife, Anita Pretorius & friends seek to honour the wishes of Vic Pretorius & have decided to host a “fundraiser with a difference” on Saturday 27th August 2022 starting at 10am at Spillers Waterfront, a popular venue on the Umzimkulu River. In support of this event, organizers are sourcing prizes, donations & sponsorships which can be used toward raffles & spot prizes & raise funds toward the target income of R70,000.
