The Port of Port Elizabeth’s latest quarterly Fishing for Charity drive helped to raise 230 pairs of school shoes, thanks to the generosity of participating anglers from in and around Nelson Mandela Bay.

Each participant donated a brand new pair of school shoes as their admission fee for the event, hosted by Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA).

The shoes were handed over to Mngcunube Primary School in Kwa Nobuhle, Uitenhage, on Friday, May 18 2018, much to the delight of learners and staff.

The port’s #Fish4Shoes Fishing Day was held on Saturday, April 14 2018 at the Charl Malan Quay. It followed on from the success of the #ToysForCharity Fishing Day held in December.

These community fishing days are part of TNPA’s People’s Port vision, which includes promoting greater public access and ensuring a vibrant port system, connecting local communities to port activities.
