For the first and only time in The Waterfronts history we are inviting the public to jump off our Bascule Bridge into the channel below. For a donation of R100 (Top Level) or R50 (Lower Level) participants will be given the opportunity to take the Spring Leap. Donations will be passed on to Famsa Knysna. The organisers who are family orientated could not be more excited to be of benefit to local charities. Life Jackets will be made available and there will be a safety vessel in the water. The jump is open to adults signing an indemnity and to children between the ages of 12 and 18 provided that their parents are willing to sign an indemnity on their behalf. To date Herbie Kostens and Sheldon Meese of The Knysna Waterfront, Charles Van Tonder of 34 South amongst other local business personnel have promised to take the leap. Do not miss this one and only opportunity to jump off one of Knysna’s landmarks or the rare chance to partake in a spontaneous TEAM building exersize and in the process provide support our local charity.
Protea Hotel Knysna Quays has been nominated for the #ALSicebucketchallenge and thought of a different way of raising funds, not only for the ALS Association, but also for national and especially local charities. Jointly The Protea Hotel Knysna Quays and the Waterfront Knysna Quays we will be donating R1000 to Knysna FAMSA and R1000 towards ‘Casual Day’ supporting 300 participating NGO’s for people with disabilities, across South Africa. This includes 4 500 companies, 100 hundred schools and 400 organizations.
Anja Nel (Marketing Manager of Protea Hotel Knysna Quays) together with Sheldon Meese (Manager of Knysna Quays Waterfront) decided to hold two events concurrently, namely the #ALSicebucketchallenge and the Blue Bridge Challenge with the Protea Hotel Quays Team Participating in both at the Waterfront venue. We promise it will be entertaining.
