Time fly’s by and another CMA Blanket Run has happened and this year it was held at the Somerset West Mall in Somerset West.

It was a combine effort from CMA Cape Town & Strand and it was fun to do.

You know us bikers, we like to give to the less fortunate and so a group of about 150 bikes and their owners arrived to support this year’s CMA Blanket Run.

This is a good amount of support seeing the date was changed and the location was also moved and the ads got out about a week before the Blanket Run would take place.

We thank the Lord for His intervention and guidance in organizing this event.

Next year things will be running better and the date will be set sooner and all the parties who participate will be called sooner.

 

We collected 211 blankets in total, and R1330.50 in cash, we    also gave our two trophies:

 

1 = Individual with most blankets – to Merwin from Knights of    St Christopher – 5 blankets.

 

1 = Club donating the most blankets – Universal Riders – 93 blankets.

 

This event was wonderfully supported by Emma from Centre  Management of Somerset Mall providing space and security  resources.

 

Wilma from Pick & Pay who sponsored the coffee, sugar, milk and the cups as well as advertising banners. Pick & Pay also made blankets available @ R39.00 each.

 

The Blankets went to:

Sencit Old Age Home – We donated 40 blankets

 Bright Star Shelter -  We donated 20 blankets

 Masibulele Crèche -  We donated 20 blankets

 Cotlands Children’s home -  We donated 48 blankets

 Zandvliet Old Age Home -  We donated 20 blankets

 Met YS -  We donated 20 blankets

 

43 Blankets were donated  towards the Dop & Chop Rally. -  These were handed to Web.

 

 

Thanks to ALL the Bikers and Clubs and Sponsors who were part of the CMA Blanket Run 2013.

Drive save and keep the Lord in your heart, and the Bonies on the road.
