A Special Thank You to Supa Quick

With a total of 34 camps booked for 2015 and just 5 of those already completed, not to mention the numerous scheduled day trips, our education bus is always working hard! At our recent 100,000 km service we were informed by the Mercedes agent that the shocks on our trusted work horse needed replacing. One of the shocks was even starting to leak. The gravel roads in the Cederberg are merciless and really put our bus to the ultimate test. Nevertheless it loyally transports up to 22 people each trip with a fully laden trailer in tow.

For this reason maintenance concerns are dealt with immediately. This is non-negotiable when it comes to ensuring the safety of the people travelling with us. We were very concerned to hear that we were looking at around R16,000 for the replacement of the shocks and it was recommended that Hadley Lyners, one of our environmental educators, contact Malcolm Paul, the owner at Supa Quick Century City, to see if he could help us to get a more affordable quote.

First thing on Tuesday morning Hadley received a call from Malcolm asking when the bus could come in. Once on site, and without delay, the team got busy. Not only did they do a superb job, but Supa Quick also covered the cost of the repair.  It is with sincere gratitude we say a special ‘big cat' thank you to Malcolm and the staff at Supa Quick for their unwavering dedication and support when it comes to looking after our bus and ensuring it stays safe. It is not the first time Supa Quick have helped us out.

Whether it is fitting our sponsored tyres from Bridgestone, fixing up punctures or re-aligning our wheels, their professional commitment to conservation through education is remarkable.

The Cape Leopard Trust salutes you.
