Karoline Hanks was nominated as a RE/MAX Premier South Peninsula Valley Hero for her work with Project Noordhoeked.
Project Noordhoeked is a non-profit community project. With funds raised (regular donors and annual fundraising events), they create jobs for four men for three days a week. They pick up rubbish along our roadways, in the wetland and on the beach. They also collect dog poo at the various beach pathways. They manage Kakapo the wire whale (which facilitates regular and ongoing beach cleanups by the beach-going public), and in so doing, hope to create awareness about the effects of single use plastic and our own personal waste footprint. Our team have been trained up to clear and treat alien invasive plants, and we conduct regular clearing of various hotspots in and around Noordhoek.
Our model is informed by the “broken window” theory, where we aspire to creating a clean environment for which residents can be proud and want to look after, and to try and encourage those moving through, to NOT trash the environment.

The Valley Heroes Concept
Every day there are people and organizations in our valley who are doing great things.
RE/MAX Premier South Peninsula and Zone Radio wish to acknowledge and reward these folk and have launched the Valley Heroes initiative. You are encouraged to nominate people or organizations you believe are worthy. Nominations should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
These will be evaluated and two Heroes of the week will be selected and showcased. From these a Valley Hero of the Month will be chosen.
RE/MAX Premier South Peninsula are passionate about property, but are also passionate about those who are working daily to improve the lives of others in the Valley.
