Wheels for John

Wheels for John

Personal message

My name is Marius Gildenhuys (53) and I live in Johannesburg. I want to raise funds for a little scooter for John Gautier, an ex-car guard, who desperately needs transport to get his business up and going.

I have known John since 2016 when he worked as a car guard at Stellenbosch Square. He was a very hard worker and although he was 67 years old, he had the energy of a 27-year-old. Since then we both moved to Johannesburg.

John is an innovative person and he created a wonderful product for which there is quite a demand from businesses. His problem is transport to suppliers, for deliveries and to canvass. Uber and taxis are simply not viable. All John needs is a small scooter with a box and he will be on his feet in no time!

Good second-hand scooters are available for around R6000 and it will make all the difference.

The funds donated will help John back on his feet again and will truly be a life-changer. A small scooter will make a BIG difference in his life.

*Funds raised will go directly to the scooter salesperson*
