Meanwhile, Sheppie High has had the very rewarding experience of having been involved with Grant Blakeway’s Melokuhle Project.
Grant is an inspirational character who, at 58 years old, is going to be rowing 4 800km solo across the Atlantic Ocean in order to raise awareness on the dire state that our oceans are in due to the scourge of plastic pollution.
The prize-giving for the raffle tickets and the most oar-strokes sold was a festive event and there were some incredible prizes up for grabs. The first prize was won by Paige Preston who won an iPhone XS Max valued at an incredible R26 000.00!
