Playing for Trees – thriVe Beach Volleyball Challenge 2019 Fundraising Event

Playing to plant indigenous trees

The third annual beach volleyball team challenge, co-ordinated by thriVe to raise funds for Precious Tree Project, was held on the 27th of December on Leentjies Klip Beach in Wilderness.

The region had been experiencing more than usual windy conditions for many weeks prior to the event, and while paragliding enthusiasts generally benefit a whole lot from these windy conditions, they are not favourable for beach volleyball and the possibility of needing to postpone the event existed. On the day though, conditions were perfect for a full day of uninterrupted volleyball.

A big thank you to:

Beach House Backpackers for hosting our Prize Giving and always making our experience so enjoyable.

Robin Auld & Wendy Oldfield for sponsoring CD’s as part of the prizes awarded on the day.

SPAR Wilderness for donating the prizes for the winning team (a picnic basket for two for each of the winning team members) and who have subsequently elected to sponsor this event every year.
