ENTERTAINMENT NEWS - With the national lockdown firmly in place, the events industry, like many others, is taking a severe knock.
This is what motivated former George resident and business owner, Clint Cawood, to take a 12 hour bicycle ride today, 1 May 2020, in an attempt to create awareness for this struggling industry.
Cawood, a member of the South African Fund 4 Entertainment (Safe) and owner of an events company with branches locally and in Cape Town, is currently busy with a static ride at his home to help create awareness of the struggling entertainment sector across South Africa.
Safe is a non-profit structure established to raise relief funds for South Africa’s entertainment, events and festival community and this initiative is to help raise funds to buy food packs for members of the events industry crew that are currently sitting with very little to no income.
To support Cawood and the struggling entertainment industry, people can pledge per km completed, per hour completed or just a once off donation.
