Africa Bike Week & Buffalo City Metro team up in Mayor’s Library Legacy Project for 2017

Continuing the tradition of supporting a local charity, Africa Bike Week™ has teamed up with Buffalo City Municipality in the Mayor’s Library Legacy Project for 2017.

Buffalo City Municipality Executive Mayor, Xola Pakati, launched a legacy project to restore the libraries of the Municipality and Africa Bike Week is proud to be a part of this project, explained Tammy Fraine, from Africa Bike Week.

"The libraries in the Buffalo City Municipality must serve many diverse functions and needs, being not simply venues for the reading and lending of books, but also focus on grass-roots education, empowerment and economic development, creating hubs for life-changing, community-based activities and programs," she described.

"The Buffalo City Municipality libraries have the potential to play a key role in tackling social exclusion, but in order to make a real difference they will need to undergo rapid transformation and change.

"We would like to encourage the public to get involved and donate any books you have at home."

Collection points have been set up at Gonubie Spar, Nahoon Spar, Vincent Spar and Lighthouse Spar. ABW 2017 extends a huge thank you to these Spars for contributing towards this worthwhile cause.

Books can also be brought to Africa Bike Week from the 27th to the 30th of April 2017.
