Happy ending after caller's heartfelt plea to help Manenberg boy with new bike
Claremont resident Rick has helped lift the spirits of a Manenberg father, after securing a brand new bicycle for his son.
Rick relays how his trusty newspaper vendor, Raymond, was left dejected when his son was mugged, and his bicycle stolen at gunpoint last week.
After Raymond spent years saving up for the bicycle, his 12 year-old son was robbed and hit over the head with a pistol.
Moved to make a difference, Rick reached out to CapeTalk listeners for help with any bicycle donations, old and new.
Immediately, Louis from Jaguar Land Rover Stellenbosch called in and committed to buying the young boy a brand new bicycle.
Now Raymond and his son, Damian, are excited to take the new bicycle for a ride!
I'm so excited and glad that my son has new bike.Raymond, Manenberg father
