Resident starts donation drive to help

East London resident Brandon Lotter wants to do his part to help those in KwaZulu-Natal affected by the recent riots, and so has set up the Help Feed KZN Facebook page.

“I started up a Facebook page to try get donations of food and money so that we can take it up to KZN,” Lotter said.

The campaign is being organised by Lotter, his brother and his fiancée.

“We’re going to go company to company, asking if they want to donate,” he said.

“We’re looking for any amount of money that will be used to buy food, or they’re more than welcome to donate food themselves.”

Lotter said he had a drop-off point set up at Build It Amalinda, and he wanted to establish another stall at Shoprite Amalinda from July 25 to 30.

“At the end of the day, you want as many people to contribute so you can help as many people as possible.

“For example, if everyone puts in R100, that adds up and you would be able to buy a lot with that,” said Lotter.

“Hopefully we can have two trucks of food to take up to KZN.

”As soon as there’s enough food collected, we’ll send the truck up.”
