AfriForum ended its #AnchorTownRoadshow at the end of November in Bethlehem through many repair projects. The #AnchorTownRoadshow kicked off in February this year and has since seen many self-do actions in Pretoria, Rustenburg, George, Nelspruit, Tzaneen, Krugersdorp, Secunda and Bethlehem.
About 1 210 bags of garbage were removed during the project, 1 714 man-hours were spent on patrols, repair works of R71 650 were carried out and 400 m² lawn was mowed. Additionally, 500 bags of tar were used to repair potholes, 39 schools were visited, 3 km’s of road signs were painted on school grounds, 134 trees were planted, and 25 businesses were treated to lunch, among other.
“The purpose of the campaign is to create hope through a series of actions that make an actual difference in towns,” says Minique Scott, AfriForum’s Manager for Community Projects.
“The #AnchorTownRoadshow does not end here. In 2020 we will be visiting 21 towns across South Africa to kick off more sustainable actions,” says Corné Cronje, AfriForum’s Manager for Community Structures.
