As a fitting boost to the 100 year celebration of Fish Hoek this year, President Marge of the Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope and members of the Rotary Club of Newlands and Cape of Good Hope, handed over the keys to Emergency Volunteer Firefighting Services (EVS) Director, Davin Chown, of the new branded support and transport vehicle, sporting signage, coloured lights, a loud siren and bright yellow branding for use by the EVS team to support of their other big vehicle - also sponsored by Rotary.
The team members stood by proudly, knowing that they now have the means to make a difference in the community by responding more rapidly to a fire call or emergency at any time, and witnessing the cementing strength of partnerships between the various community volunteer services.
The handover which took place in the Valley last week, is thanks to the successful fundraising evening, with the band Watershed being the main attraction, the MC, Cricketer Robin Jackman, the hard work and support of sponsors and Rotary Club of Newlands and the overwhelming support of the local Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope
EVS is an organisation that provides volunteer crews to help fight fires and deal with emergencies. They also raise community awareness by means of fire and safety education, and have also assisted the Rotary Club Cape of Good at the Rotary Family Health Days and supported their Dragon Boat fundraising Regatta last year.
