Plett Tourism’s web developer Brendon Morris will be riding with the Lunchbox Legends Team again this year in the Cape Town Cycle Tour in a bid to raise funds for the education of the children of Plett.
About this quest
“Last year I managed a very mediocre time (I’m blaming it on the southeaster), perhaps secretly so that I could easily improve on it this year! But apart from the personal challenge and the fun of riding with the team, this is about raising funds for the education of the people (our children) who will run this world after we’ve had our chance.
Lunchbox Theatre does some amazing work in our community. My kids have come home from school a number of times telling me how they were magically entertained in the hall by the Lunchbox gang. Our children need to be informed about the myriad of social and environmental issues that face us all these days, and what better way than through live stage acts and plays. It’s entertaining and gets the important messages across without boring the kids.
I visited the primary school in Harkerville where Lunchbox Theatre was putting on a show that was funded directly by the donations received in my bid to take part in the 2018 cycle tour. The play showed kids the importance of being mindful regarding future sexual choices, the importance of being tested for HIV, that there is hope for those who contract the virus… and the consequences of not seeking treatment.
If you, the reader, can sponsor me, I can promise that the funds raised will go directly towards putting on theatrical performances that will educate our children regarding the many social, environmental and health issues that will face them as they mature.
And if there’s one thing that has a chance of saving our country and the people who live in it, it’s education.”
