NMB Anglers Support We've Got Winter Covered Charity Fishing Day

With a blanket as entry fee about 250 anglers were given access to a safe fishing spot for the Port of PE’s latest quarterly fishing day, which set out to bring warmth to Nelson Mandela Bay residents in need.

The 'We've Got Winter Covered' charity fishing day, organised by Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) and held on 21 July, collected a total of 260 blankets. 

On 3 August employees from the Port of PE handed these over to various organisations caring for people in need - including Ekuphumleni Old Age Home, Inn Safe Hands Children's Home, the Sinako, Licebo and Siphuthando Day Care Centres, as well as homeless people living around Vuyisile Mini Square in Nelson Mandela Bay.

These quarterly 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.
