We are so pleased to announce that LCP Roofing has joined our cause. Lyndsay Cotton, General Manager at LCP Roofing, attended our Gala Banquet in October last year, and was so inspired by our cause that he decided to jump on board to assist us in spreading the message about the plight of our rhinos. LCP Roofing branded one of their transportation vehicles with TSA Rhino Trust’s logo and contact details as well as some beautiful images of rhinos. Thank you Lyndsay and your team, we truly appreciate your support!
About LCP Roofing
LCP Roofing designs, manufacturers, delivers and erects roof trusses. As an added service we supply and lay roof tiles so that we in effect offer a FULL roof construction service. A value added service is the design and supply of decorative plates for exposed roof trusses. LCP Roofing also designs, manufactures and erects floor joists to the residential and commercial markets.
Lyndsay Cotton and Andri Pretorius developed the idea of a partnership in 2009 and in May 2010 they formally commenced business. We come from very diverse backgrounds, education and training and yet each brings 100% to the table in terms of skills, dedication and general business direction. We have built both a partnership and company that we are proud of.
Social responsibility – This is such an overrated buzz-word and to be honest, our commercial lives would be no better or worse off for undertaking it or not. However, it is not that. We believe, probably much like Mr Charl du Toit, that philanthropic efforts and the will to it is in our core as human beings. We are fortunate on so many levels and know that we have a duty to help others.
Why TSA Rhino Trust?
Well, we identified a children’s home in Benoni earlier this year that we wanted to focus our nutritional anthropological efforts on. Positive nutritional status has an effect on health, and later work performance and we trust that our efforts over the long term will assist in bearing fruit.
Similarly we were looking for an environmental cause to centre our energy on and South Africa, and indeed our World, has so much to learn about the preservation of our heritage.
There are many arguments either for the creation of, or against policy to prevent exploitation and damage to both our land and our animals. Our rhinos are suffering due to the dearth of knowledge and also due to malicious intent and exploitation by those bent on personal financial gain.
Attending the gala banquet recently galvanised us into action and hence then this effort in support of the trust. What better way than to display this cause for the world to see. Our trucks travel countrywide and we know that this initiative will go a long way in creating not only awareness but hopefully support of the Rhino Trust as well.
