The main object of the Redstone Hills Trust is to establish a fund to assist in the care and development of the less fortunate in the Kannaland Municipal District. The support is provided in the form of grants, donations, sponsorships and bursaries to individuals, educational institutions and sports clubs.
The Mountain bike and trail running weekend is currently the principal fundraising event of the trust.
Projects that we have supported in 2017
From the proceeds of the 2017 event the Redstone Hills Trust awarded R75,000 to worthy community development activities.
Grants were made to six local projects:
The direct developmental impact of the 2017 Redstone will therefore be about R137,000 – R19,000 more than 2016.
“Thank you for your participation which indeed makes a huge difference in the lives of the less privileged people around Calitzdorp and hopefully later in other areas within the Kannaland municipal area!”
Trustees: Chris Ball, Jac Bekker and Willemien Fourie
