Help save the rhinos

Somerset West rhino activist, 11-year-old Hunter Mitchell, who recently received a Point of Light award from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan, is holding a fundraiser at the Indigo Spur at Waterstone Village on Wednesday November 27, from 6pm.

“At the 2018 Spur Fundraiser I managed to raise R5 000 with the very kind help of the Indigo Spur at Waterstone and the management team Rob Smailes and Christo Le Roux, who have always been so supportive of me. Warren Parkin from Manor Homes was at the fundraiser that night and offered to double the amount so it was a huge success.

“This year I hope to raise R15 000”, says Hunter. “We will achieve more for our futures if we are all making a small difference, instead of expecting just a few people to make a massive difference.

“We have only been given one planet – one planet to love, share and protect. What we do to this planet will be handed on to our children and grandchildren.

“So, please join me at the Indigo Spur to enjoy a meal and do your small thing that could make a big difference to our declining rhino population. Extinction is forever and we need to act now.”
