The PhatGMRides into Hogsback

Our little village was fortunate to host the guys from PhatGMRides, Leon and Gerhard, this week. Their awareness campaign and fundraising initiative was created to help alleviate some of the financial pressures and hardships that businesses and employees in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry face, due to the Covid-19 travel restrictions. The cycle tour gives them a way to put their COMPASSION in MOTION. They don’t just want to speak about the hardships of our people, but also want to do something about it.

They showcase the beauty of the regions along the way and obviously had a great time in Hogsback as we are indeed very, very beautiful!!

At our little local get together of tourism organisations and establishments, we shared some of our stories and they related stories of hope that they have gathered along the way.

Elizabeth shared about our recycling competition. You can read more about it and enter!

As our Info Centre was one of the casualties of Covid, Glen shared how we made a plan and how she became a mask-pimp!

The guys from PhatGmRdes did a wonderful video about their rides arounds Hogsback, which you can see here. You can also follow their progress through the rest of the Eastern Cape here:

You can also make a donation to their worthwhile cause, on their website!
