Vetkoek challenge

■ Girl Guides ​Cape West hosted a Mandela Day vetkoek challenge yesterday where they made 6 700 vetkoeks in honour of the 67 years Nelson Mandela spent in prison. The challenge took place at the Pinelands Guide Hall in Pinelands and Girl Guides ​Cape West members across the Cape came to do their 67 minutes. The vetkoek was donated to charities and organisations​ across the province throughout the day. Vetkoek was also sold for R2 and for every one sold, one was donated. “We are not only filling a lot of hungry tummies but we also raised awareness of guiding as an organisation​,​ that strives to not only help others, but to help ​guide girls to a confident future,” said Tanya Prinsloo from the Bothasig Rangers.
