Andrew Matthews is raising funds for Duzi Umngeni Conservation Trust

I am looking forward to taking part in the 16 Mile challenge at Midmar 2019 in support of DUCT.

2019 will be the 4th annual rendition of the 16 Mile after Olympic swimmer, Terence Parkin, first achieved this feat in 2010.

Our goal as 16 Milers is to raise R20 000 for charity. 80% goes to the Duzi uMngeni Conservation Trust (DUCT) and 20% goes to the following smaller charities:

Special Olympics - Little Eden - Umngeni SPCA - Pietermaritzburg SPCA - SA Guide Dogs - KZN Cystic Fibrosis - Pevensey Place - Thandanani - Society for the Blind & Deaf - Village Safe Haven - Gateway Christian School - iThemba Lethu - SA Legion.

NOTE!! If any sponsors/donors require a S18A Donations Tax certificate the funds must be paid directly into the following DUCT bank account:

Name: DUCT Projects
Acc no: 1142593509

Upon receipt of funds DUCT will advise Kydrin of the amount so that it is recorded against my goal amount.

Please help out by donating what you can, all amounts are gratefully received.
