Support George: Our Ice-Cream Icon

Personal message

Donate Via Snapscan

Our local Ice Cream Icon, Phontshe, or George as we know him, has been selling ice cream in Bloubergstrand since 1973. Although not a resident, he has been part of our community for the past 43 years, bringing scoops of joy to everyone that crosses his path. 

Commendably, at the age of 70, George travels daily from his home in Khayelitsha to Bloubergstrand to sell the sweetest ice creams, even on some brrrrr days. Due to his age, George is no longer riding his bicycle but pushing it. 

His daughter Babalwa has stepped in to assist him. Unfortunately, on many days, they do not even make enough money to cover their fare home. 

George is adorned by many for his patient and kind-loving nature.  

Bringing scoops of joy to the kids and community of Bloubergstrand for decades.

After reaching out to our Bloubergstrand community, everyone shared their fondness and memories of George. With a keen interest to contribute something beautiful to him and his family. 

It was decided to create a Back-a-Buddy page for George. All that was left for George to do was to open up a bank account in his name this week. I am delighted to announce that George and Babalwa arrived at our home this morning (Monday, 23 August 2021) with his newly opened bank details - his first in 70 years! I am excited for us to make a beautiful contribution to George and his family's life. 

Thank you, our community, for stepping up to the plate and being willing to help someone that did not even ask for it, but deserves it. It is through community action like this that we can make a genuine change in people's lives.

Some lovely testimonies from Bloubergstranders are below. Please also share yours! We will have it translated, printed, and laminated for George in his home language Xhosa. 

"My kids are 18 & 20 now, in their toddler years they'd run after George with great excitement & he'd always patiently wait while they made their ice cream choices. More than happy to contribute. "

"My little Elli who’s 11 now got many free ice-creams as a baby when our nanny used to sit & chat to him at the beach - I’ll definitely support him thanks" 

"Grandson was rewarded with a free ice cream for helping George lift his bike up the ramp at Kleinbaai thanks, good idea."

 

"Lovely man. Always kind and generous to our kids, happy to contribute."

George Phontshe Peni Support Cause

George Phontshe Peni Support Cause Logo

Our local Ice Cream Icon, Phontshe, or George as we know him, has been selling ice cream in Bloubergstrand since 1973. Although not a resident, he has been part of our community for the past 43 years, bringing scoops of joy to everyone that crosses his path. 

Commendably, at the age of 70, George travels daily from his home in Khayelitsha to Bloubergstrand to sell the sweetest ice creams, even on some brrrrr days. Due to his age, George is no longer riding his bicycle but pushing it.
