Following the news that more than 2 000 people were left homeless after a fire broke out in Hout Bay on Saturday, cyclists and event organizers put the energy bars and drinks that would have been used for the event to good use and donated it to those who were affected by the fire.
Many companies, including various Pick n Pay stores, chipped in to help the victims.
Pick n Pay announced that they will be donating all of the food that was brought in for the tour to the victims of the devastating fire.
For every cyclist that trained at a gym in Cape Town, Virgin Active will also be donating R10 to the fire relief fund.
Radio presenter Liezl Van der Westhuizen has also asked the public for their help, saying that all donations are welcome.
Liezl said that those who would like to donate – but were unable to get to the nearest drop off station – can tweet @KFM and someone from the station would collect it for you.
The fire station in Hout Bay is also accepting donations.
