Ocean View Football Club Annual Environment Day 2018
August 15, 2018
The Ocean View Football Annual Environment Day, a Spur Corporation initiative, was a day to remember with plenty of local kids rolling up their sleeves and doing their bit to clean their beach and learn more about the importance of saving water and our precious marine life.
The overall aim of the day was to inspire the enthusiastic young volunteers to save water and appreciate marine life by contributing to the conservation of our oceans for generations to come. With this year’s theme being “Water-wise”, the day was hosted at the Soetwater Environmental Centre in Cape Town and was a generous collaboration between Two Oceans Aquarium, Cape Town Water Conservation and the Oceans Conservation.
Together with support from Spur Corporation, the day was jam-packed with action, including a clean-up on the beach, educational talks around the importance of saving water, a fun puppet show and the Oceans in Motion mobile aquarium where children had an unforgettable experience with live marine animals. After all the hard work, fun and learning, the children were treated to delicious Spur Burgers.
Eco Team member, Earle Cloete (CRM Manager) once again headed up the event on behalf of the Spur Corp. Environmental Committee. Speaking to him on the day, he emphasised the long-term benefits and intentions of the event: “This initiative teaches kids about the importance of saving water and taking responsibility for the well-being of marine life and the environment.”
With the commitment and enthusiasm shown by all involved, the youth of Ocean View can rest assured that their future is looking very bright.
