The Northwood School Cycling Club helped community member Keletso repair his old bike, getting him back on the road in no time.


Durban, South Africa (28 May 2024) – Northwood School is celebrating its 75th birthday, a Jubilee year, by running an initiative dubbed “75 Bikes”. Led by Mr Richter and the school’s Cycling Team, the Northwood School boys set themselves the task of donating 75 bicycles to communities and individuals in need.

Northwood School is a secondary school based in Durban North that has both day-to-day schooling and provides boarding for students from outside the Durban North area. The young men that enrol in the school have a large offering of education and sporting programmes.

Recently, they added another bike to the initiative, helping a young man named Keletso to repair his bicycle. The school shared the heartwarming moment on their Facebook page recently.

“Mr Richter was approached by one of our community members to help a local young man, Keletso, who works at Checkers Durban North.

He brought in his very old bike that had no brakes or gears for our boys to fix up, and the cycling club, through their 75 Bikes for 75 Years initiative, were able to hand him one of the donated bikes.

Keletso was overjoyed, and shared that this is his only means of transport from home to work and back.
Thank you to our community for supporting this project, and for reaching out and helping to identify a need that we could assist in solving.”
