Shelter Box

The Shelter Box came about when a Cornish Rotarian and ex Royal Marine realised the pressing need for the provision of shelter in disaster areas. Having been in such zones, he saw that food always arrived quickly, but people were often left without any shelter.

These wonderful boxes contain everything necessary for a family to live until they can be restored to their homes. The tent is lightweight, easy to erect and can comfortably house up to 10 people. The stove assembles easily and will burn almost anything. Cooking and eating utensils are of high quality stainless steel. The water purifier is simple to operate. The cost of these Shelter Boxes is a mere $1000 and Haenertsburg Rotary Club is proud to have been able to pay for 2.

 

GOLDWING Wing Riders Rotary Ramble

A group of Wing riders from the Goldwing Club visited Magoebaskloof in early October 2015. Rotary Haenertsburg hosted a "Wing Fling Ramble" that started at the Orion Magoebaskloof Hotel.  There were 20 bikes and 1 BMW car (they had a wedding!).  An entry fee to participate raised funds towards our Foundation Fund which amounted to approximately R4200. The Ramble covered a route around the area of about 150 kilometres where clues had to be followed and observed and questions answered from clues at various places visited. It was a really fun way to learn more about the people, history, culture and attractions of the region.
