Save Our Beach Huts

Save Our Beach Huts

Personal message

We are raising funds to buy supplies to Save the Muizenberg Beach huts from disintegration.. The Campaign has caught the attention of the public as a community campaign.  They are all keen to help, whether by donating time, manpower in the form of paining the beach huts, or suggesting they donate money to the project. We have the support of the Cape Town City Council as well as the Historical Society of Muizenberg.

The Muizenberg Beach huts are not only Muizenberg's most precious asset, they are also a symbol used in 1000's of advertising campaigns and movies which promote South Africa.  We cannot let these huts fall apart and have to be destroyed.  We have to save them.  This campaign is to crowdfund to raise money and awareness for just that. 

We already have wonderful people, both local and from overseas, who love what we are aiming to do and have suggested we crowd-fund to enable us to buy supplies and materials so that we can go ahead with this project.

We have many donations of time, manpower and some materials from donors. The funds will be used to buy paint, brushes, solvent and other sundry items to complete the project.  

 

*As per the campaign creator's request, funds raised will be paid directly to Whale Watchers Properties*
