REGISTER FOR OR SUPPORT THE EXTRA MILE RUN

More Community Trust and its partners have had to postpone The Extra Mile Trail Run scheduled for the 16th May 2020.

This is due to the national state of disaster declared on 15th March 2020 by President Cyril Ramaphosa, which included measures such as a ban on all events with over 100 people. This ban extends to the 15th June and may be lifted early but also may be extended. We are 100% sure that this postponement is the best decision for the safety of all of our participants and community members.

We are currently looking to move the event to Spring and will confirm the new date once we have a better idea of what the COVID-19 spread and the subsequent national state of disaster will look like going forward.

We apologise sincerely for any inconvenience caused, but trust that you understand these motivating factors.

We are very excited about this year’s Extra Mile and will bring you an incredible Trail Run with Heart soon.

COVID-19: Donate a food parcel for vulnerable families

For many of our neighbours, a national lockdown means not being able to feed one's family - a burden no one should have to bear at this difficult time. We're creating food parcels for vulnerable families who have no income or access to government grants. Parcels for South African families will cost R500 per month, and R750 ($40) for the neighbours of our Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel in Zimbabwe. Every donation helps!

MAKE A GENERAL DONATION

Over the years, More Community Trust (MCT) has built close relationships with our local communities, and guests are invited to visit. This gives them the opportunity to experience a different – and humbling – way of living; visit culturally- and historically- significant sites; and connect with local people, while positively impacting their lives with the funds raised from these tours.

Guests of Lion Sands Game Reserve travel to the local village of Huntington to visit MCT’s projects there, including pre- and primary schools. Here, guests get to engage with the children, and learn about rural life and its everyday challenges.
