Madiba Get well Sandcastle to be build in JBay

On Saturday 15 December numerous Jeffreys Bay residents will be getting together to build a get well sandcastle for Nelson Mandela who is now in his 5th day of hospitalization.

Concerned South Africans and citizens all over the world have registered their concern for the frail 94 year old icon who is apparently suffering from respiratory failure. While media statements have stated the former president is “comfortable” concerns continue to mount for his health.

Showing their support for the former president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, will be a group of action hockey ladies in Jeffreys Bay called the Foxes. The Foxes intend to build a large sandcastle at Kabeljous Beach, Jeffreys Bay to read Get Well Madiba with love Jeffreys Bay which will be uploaded onto various websites and Facebook pages around the country, encouraging other coastal communities to follow suit.

According to Dr Petro Maritz, captain of the Foxes, Nelson Mandela remains an inspirational statesman to people all over the world with her husband JC Van Wyk recently completing the iconic and gruelling 7.5km Robben Island to Blouberg swim crossing.

Everyone is welcome to come and help out; there is no charge and all you need to bring is buckets, spades, cozzies and kids! The group will be meeting from 8am onwards at the Kabeljous beach which can be accessed by turning off Da Gama road at the Kabeljous Caravan Park and proceeding 300m to the car park.

Pictures will be uploaded on the Algoa FM Facebook page so come along and show your support for Madiba! For more information contact Cheryl Gibson-Dicks on 0716863440 email cherylgd@telkomsa.net .
