The annual Kwelera to Kei Mouth (K2K) 70km mountain bike ride will take place on November 23 in a bid to raise funds for SPCA.

Mike Webb, known affectionately as the Pink Fairy, will ride out together with a host of supporters for a fun ride in aid of the East London, King Will i a m ’s Town and Stutterheim SPCA’s expenses.

“People are welcome to bring however much they would like to donate to the event. All ages are encouraged to participate,“ Webb said.

He managed to raise R8,000 in the 2018 K2K and East London-based entertainer Kerry Hiles was on hand to entertain the riders.

“Unfortunately, Kerry will not be joining us this year. We do however have 33 Pink Fairy assistants who are driving the project forward,“ Webb said.

The mountain bike race will see cyclists travel from Crossways Village, East Coast Resort, all the way to the Kei Mouth Country Club.

Dale College Boys’ Primary School surprised the Pink Fairy with a generous donation of dog and cat food – and R10, 000 raised throughout the year.

“They were supposed to do a Pink Fairy Day in May like they do every year but it fell through due to unforseen circumstances. It came through unexpectedly and a really lovely surprise when they phoned and told me,” he said.

Willard Batteries East London have donated 1, 400kg of dog food to the K2K fund raising initiative.

“It is enormous, unbelievably big. They are challenging others businesses to try and match or better that, so hopefully that will take off,” Webb said.

They hope to break the R40, 000 mark set for the fundraiser.

Some of the assistants met at Table 58 recently and have raised over R20,000 so far. For those willing to assist, contact Webb on 084-5978-8254 or email
