THE volunteers group of the First National Bank in the Fountains Mall raised a whopping R3300 for charity last month.
The group got all wet and soapy charging R30 to wash smaller cars and R50 for larger ones.
All the proceeds went towards the Rotary J-Bay Recycling project in the Pellsrus area. The money was used to buy goods such as shoes, socks, book bags and stationery.
Thanking the likes of the Fountains Mall especially marketing manager, Estee Roos, Humansdorp Toyota, Caltex, McDonalds, Woolworths, the public, Rotary and Jeffreys Bay Recycling volunteers and the staff and their families of FNB. Branch manager Stephanie Bellingham said it was fantastic how everyone got involved. “Some members of the public made the donation and then still washed their own cars.”
She hopes this will become a regular event.
Children from Pellsrus bring all recyclable trash to the depot of the Jeffreys Bay Recycling project in Pellsrus, every Monday in exchange for “mulas” which are then used to buy various products and goods from the shop on the premises. Most of the goods “sold” in the shop are donated.
Accepting the goods on behalf of the project, Rotary chairman Salomien de Klerk thanked FNB and everyone involved, and said this proves that when people stand together much can be achieved.
