Cindy McArthur (left) and Kaitlyn Spiro from Plettenberg Bay bought their #KnynsaRises T-shirt on Saturday, July 8 at the Waterfront for what they believe is to be a great cause.
KNYSNA NEWS - Andrew and Tessa Jones lost their home in Eastford Vale in the fires of June 7 and with it also their business, which was a printing T-shirt company.
In the wake of the destruction of their lives, they have worked on producing a new line of merchandise with the logo #KnynsaRises.
SilentK, the name of their original company, has been authorised by Knysna tourism to sell the merchandise with 20% going to a disaster fund which will be handled by Knysna & Partners.
The T-shirts were first worn by the Knysna mayor Eleanore Bouw-Spies and chairperson of the board of Knysna tourism Elmay Bouwer when television host Leanne Manas interviewed them on SABC, Friday, July 7.
On Saturday morning the T-shirts (long sleeve, hoody and short sleeves in black, white and grey) were sold at the Sedgefield market and at the entrance, walkway, to the Waterfront shops.
To support Andrew and Tessa, but also contribute to a Knysna disaster fund, the merchandise will be sold at Woodmill Lane and at the Waterfront.
For more information phone Tessa on 071 204 2056, Andrew on 071 401 7200 or Mark Taylor on 082 498 8940.
