'Boikanyo Bug' will be making its way to Romania for the Round Table International World Meeting happening in August.

The Round Table Golden East 181 will leave Johannesburg on 14 July 2019 to drive a 1972 Volkswagen Beetle, better known as the Boikanyo Bug, all the way to Romania. The aim is to raise funds for and also awareness of the Boikanyo Foundation.

Project convener Gareth Coats says the money will be used to assist with the payments of heart surgeries for underprivileged children who are stuck on the waiting list in the public health sector.

We had to come up with an epic way for people to notice our project. So we will be travelling to Romania to the Round Table International World Meeting which will be taking place in August and we're going to gate crash the meeting.

Gareth Coats, Project convener - The Round Table Golden East 181

The biggest thing for us at the end of this journey, we want to collect funds to pay for 125 surgeries by the end of the coming financial year.

Gareth Coats, Project convener - The Round Table Golden East 181

The organisation is hoping to raise about R500m by driving 14 500km. To make a contribution visit their website or Facebook page.
