It’s that time again; we’ve come through the other side, with a myriad of new experiences, and short a few material items. Whether it’s a bike, or a camera, or that thing your aunt gave you that you’ve never known what it is, all items are being collected up and will be beginning their long journeys home shortly.
So, for those of you that need a bit of assistance in this process, here’s how it’s going to work:
The first load of Lost & Found (ie. the flotsam and jetsam that was in the booth at the end of the festival) is almost in Cape Town, and will begin sorting and categorising from this week Friday the 12th May. This information/photographs will be posted on our Lost & Found page on Facebook. You can find that here. This is not an easy process, so be patient and you’ll start seeing the results next week.
For more direct communication with our Lost & Found Team, you can send an email to [email protected] with a clear description of the item, as well as any further information (photos, sketches, serial number, etc.) and they will communicate with you via email.
The second truckload of Lost & Found, found by DPW and the MOOP teams while sweeping the site, will be arriving in Cape Town in two weeks (on around the , and will be the second phase of the matching process. Follow the same links above, and the same guidelines for both.
All items not positively identified will be donated to charities through our outreach programme, and all bicycles not collected will be donated to the communities surrounding Tankwa Town and previously disadvantaged communities in Cape Town.
