It’s that wonderful time of year again. It’s Autumn, so days are often mild but sunny and we’re hoping the Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse ladies have 4 glorious days for their annual walk.
They leave today (12th March) from the Agulhas Lighthouse and walk along the coastline to Danger Point Light House in Gansbaai and then across Die Plaat arriving on Grotto Beach at about 4pm.
The walk is stunning, but by no means easy, and the ladies who do it raise a large amount of money to help local Overstrand charities.
Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse consists of a group of women from the Overstrand, who annually walk approx 100 kilometers from Cape Agulhas to Danger Point Lighthouse over 4 days.
In the beginning, the ladies carried everything they needed for the duration of the walk.
Now, they camp at Die Dam for the period we are walking, carrying what we need for the day’s walk.
Their aim is to raise money for charities which serve the Overstrand. Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse is not a charity itself, but a vehicle to raise money for registered causes. Every cent we collect is handed over to the charity of choice.
Please contribute if you haven’t already, remember to make the reference the name of the walker you are sponsoring if applicable.
