CPT bikers aim to feed over 2 000 people before the end of Good Friday

An initiative by Keith Blake The Ottery Boyz Motorcycle Club will see those less fortunate receive a plate of pickled fish and buttered bread, as well as other donations before the end of Good Friday.

The bikers are out on their fifth annual run this year, to feed underprivileged residents in Hanover Park, Lotus River, Parkhood and other surrounding areas.

If there is any pickled fish left we are not coming back with it, we are going to find other places.

Keith Blake, member of The Ottery Boyz MCC

Five years ago when we had pickeled fish at home, people from informal settlements because I am a retired police officer an activist, people always asked for pickled fish and we never had...So as long as I live I will not eat a bowl of pickled fish until we have fed the poor.

Keith Blake, member of The Ottery Boyz MCC

By the grace of God we have fed every Good Friday between 2 500 and 3 000 people in the Cape Flats.
