I am Vanessa Krieger. My son, Werner Krieger, is 12 years old. He currently lives in Brakpan North and is a Grade 6 learner.
I am trying to raise some funds to assist with his dream to represent himself, his school, and his family at the Gauteng Freshwater Angling Association Championships being held in Bloemhoff in December 2019.
I had to send Werner to school a year late due to a house robbery where he and grandmother were held hostage. This contributed to him being traumatized, and he was not emotionally strong enough to attend school. Although he felt ready, it was recommended that he start a year later. That said, doing sports at school was always difficult as he always needed to play a year up meaning that he never made it onto the team.
His school has never had fishing as a sport. At the beginning of the year, when the school introduced this sport, he never thought that he will be blessed enough to make it to the Gauteng Championships. To his surprise, I was chosen to represent Gauteng. This is such a big opportunity and honour and I know that this is a big blessing.
I need to pay all fees by the end of November 2019. Donations will be used as follows:
Accommodation - R1800
Registration fee - R950
Food - R2000
Expenses for fishing dips - R2000
Equipment - R8250 (including Gauteng clothing)
The funding will help Werner achieve his goals and it will help him reach his dreams.
*Funds raised will be paid directly to the Gauteng Freshwater Bank Angling Association*
