Penguin Plunge

Penguin Plunge

Stanford Tourism Bureau

The annual Penguin Plunge is planned for Saturday, 20 June 2015 – we would like to make this a spectacular event as this is the 5th year running that the brave Penguins jump into the ice cold Klein River (with shivering Chickens on river bank to encourage them!). Springfontein Estate will once again provide reviving Gluhwein and Hot Chocolate whilst Penguin Tutoring will make sure each ‘plunger’ gets their customary beaded penguin.

This year we unfortunately have to forge ahead without the 'parents' of the Penguin Plunge as Anton and Tracey will be away. Springfontein Estate will once again provide reviving Gluhwein and Hot Chocolate whilst Penguin Tutoring will make sure each 'plunger' gets their customary beaded penguin. 

Any local volunteers who would like to assist with arrangements, please contact Rotary Stanford (Malcolm 084 441 0961, Stephen 084 705 6719 or Ansie 082 320 0982).

All funds raised will go towards soup kitchens supplies for elderly and infirm members of our community. Further updates on Penguin Plunge FB page - all challenges welcomed.
