September is a lovely time of year – with Mother Nature putting on an impressive display of blooms and the general feeling of new beginnings (and warmer weather) in the air. If you’re looking for a fresh start and a way to make an impact within your community, now is the perfect time to pledge your support to a charity of your choice.
If you don’t already know, The Kloof Project was formed by a group of local residents who got together with the common goal of wanting to tidy up their beloved Kloof village. These residents now volunteer their time and resources to look after the village. So, if you’re looking for a charity to support – this is a worthy cause indeed. TKP was formed by these residents who were concerned about their suburb and the lack of maintenance from the local municipality. All their projects are supported by the donations of local businesses and individuals, and they rely greatly on these donations in order to continue their work.
If you’d like to assist them, here are some small ways you can help.
Sponsor an Adopt-a-Spot
Many sites that TKP maintain, fall under the Adopt-A-Spot programme. You can choose to sponsor the upkeep and maintenance of a spot by donating money each month to cover the costs involved in the upkeep. There are currently 27 areas around Kloof that TKP has landscaped and now maintains, stretching from the Village Rd/Pioneer off ramp, at the top of Fields Hill, through to the CBD, and as far as the Maytime/Abrey Road off ramp. You can apply to sponsor one of these areas as a company or individual by simply emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
TKP host various fundraising events throughout the year, which are usually full of fun for the whole family. The latest event is Arbor Day – join them this Saturday 4 September 2021, from 8am – 12pm, to plant trees along the railway line from Stokers to Pioneer Road and within the greater CBD of Kloof. Contact Christopher Dalzell for more information and to book your tree: email@example.com Follow TKP on social media to keep up to date with their future fundraising events.
