Inspired by Somerset West’s Reece Barends’ battle with cancer, the Somerset 1 dynamic Facebook group is dedicating their first birthday party, the Rock Star Party, to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust (LFCT) on Saturday, 13 December at the Nameless Pub.
The group, started by Stephen Leppan, prides itself on the spectacular events it holds to raise funds for charity.
Saturday 13th December is going to be a day to be remembered in Somerset West!
The day will begin with a convoy of truckers from the Western Cape Truckers Association meeting at the N2 Macassar Engen Garage whence they will depart at 12 noon and drive in convoy through the Somerset West CBD to the Mondeor Garden Restaurant on the N2.
Children are invited to come along for a ride in the trucks as they proceed, collecting new toys, for the LFCT Christmas Elf Project.
At the Mondeor Garden Restaurant, the truckers will hand their gifts to Little Cancer Fighters Trust. Members of the public are welcome to meet the trucks and come enjoy a great afternoon with the children.
Hannes van der Merwe, representative of Western Cape Truckers, said “We want to make this an annual event, and will be building up to match the popularity and size of the annual Biker’s Toy Run.”
