As expected, organisers of the popular Nedbank Spring Festival have not only promised a much bigger and better event but have vowed to make this year’s festival an unforgettable jaunt for all participants.
This year’s festival, to be held this Saturday at the Avis Dam Eagles on the outskirts of the capital, will see participants standing a chance of claiming a lucky draw valued at N$70 000.
The event starts at 08h00 and visitors can expect to be entertained throughout the day with fitness competitions, rodeo bull and various activities for the children in a nature-friendly pristine environment that offers good time for family and friends.
This will be the 4th year that Nedbank teams up with Cycletec to bring the 18th spring festival which welcomes spring in style with various enjoyable outdoor activities.
The Nedbank Spring Festival last year saw over 560 registered participants taking part in various activities ranging from off road duathlon, trail run, mountainbike rides and family dog walk at Eagles (Avis Dam).
Keeping in line with this year’s theme to promote a healthy lifestyle, the Food Lovers Market Fruit and Veg will again this Saturday again grace the spring festival to provide participants with free fresh fruits.
In addition, as has been the practice for the past three years, Cycletec together with their suppliers once again placed the entire prize purse towards the lucky draw, which every registered participant qualifies for. The value of the lucky draw is N$ 70 000.
Gernot de Klerk, Head of Nedbank Marketing and Communication shares that the Nedbank Spring Festival remains a special highlight on the Windhoek annual calendar.
“As we continue to promote a healthy and active lifestyle – this year in particular we would like to bring attention to our Nedbank Spring Health Basket Corporate Challenge, in support of our elderly. We are challenging our corporates to buy a spring health basket that will be donated to identified old age homes across the country – the drive will run up until the end of September. Spring brings with it a special cheer and we invite you to pay it forward with us.”
The Mammadù Children’s Shelter will also be at the event selling crafts made by the mothers of some of the children who receive support from the Mammadù Children Shelter situated in Otjomuise. “We encourage you to come out and support them at the Nedbank Spring Festival.”
