“It is going to make a world of difference to the recipients. Especially Sunset House in Muizenberg. Dot Barker 84 years old herself) cooks for 16 people every day. She has taken most of these Pensioners in – they would otherwise be on the street, literally! I am so grateful to you. You cannot possible my know what a huge difference you have made in 72 lives. Thank you.”

Let’s Hear if for the Crankhandle Club!

Crankhandle Comes Through
It’s almost predictable that at the eleventh hour some angels appear to make it all happen!  Well let’ s hear if for The Crankhandle Club whose assistance has made the Easter Hampers a done and dusted total success ‘and then some!’

The Crank-handle Club gave Our Mothers Our Fathers R3000 worth of Groceries and hot cross buns.  Thank you so much, Peter Truter and the Crankhandle Club members.

HISTORY
In the early 1950’s, a small group of Cape Town old car enthusiasts used to meet at the Kinnes Service Station in Gabriel Road in the suburb of Plumstead. The garage housed a collection of old cars and a substantial library of motoring books. After taking part in the first old car rally in South Africa, nineteen enthusiasts met at Prince’s Hotel in Newlands on the 14th of July 1955 and established the Crankhandle Club. Within six months, membership had more than doubled and has continued to grow ever since. Today the Club has more than 500 members, who between them, own some 1000 older vehicles, covering a full range of saloons, sports cars, racing cars, commercial vehicles and motor cycles.

The Club is housed in a converted fire station in the historic village of Wynberg in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. Our clubhouse is open every Wednesday evening at 20h00 and visitors are welcome. Members and guests bring their cars on the last Sunday of the month to the historic manor house, Timour Hall in Plumstead, for tea / coffee at 10h30, followed by a lunchtime “braai”. Numerous other activities, breakfast runs and rallies are organised throughout the year.

The Club diplays two of the oldest cars in South Africa, a 1901 Benz and a 1902 Wolseley in it’s clubhouse, which also houses an extensive motoring library with publications going back to the dawn of motoring in Cape Town, 1898. If you are a fellow enthusiast, we’d be delighted to show you around.

OMOF Was Launched on the 30 March 2017

 

Ann Bishop with her daughter Lauren

‘Our Mothers Our Fathers’  is a new False Bay initiative that aims to extend logistical support to Ann Bishop’s elderly care efforts.

We at Chas Everitt Cape Town South had the honour of assisting Ann Bishop at the end of last year with her Christmas hampers drive. It was a great success but in the process, our eyes were opened to the substantial need within our community of many elderly people, many who are destitute and many who are very proud and thus find it difficult to ask for help, and as a consequence, the desperation of their circumstances remains hidden.

Our mothers Our Fathers was a name chosen to remind us all, that these senior citizens are entitled to dignity and compassion in their assistance. This is at the heart of how Ann operates. OMOF will support Ann with getting the hamper contents together with the objective of providing the most needy with four hampers a year.  Our website www.omof.co.za has the details of the dates and what we still need, and this list is updated in real time as donations come in.

If you want to help, just drop off any item/s from the list at either Chas Everitt Fish Hoek (Main Road) or Chas Everitt Tokai (Tokai Road).  Our deadline for the Easter Hamper is this week Thursday.

For more details and to see what items we still need, please go to the ABOUT page on  www.omof.co.za
