Centurion calls all heroes

We encourage all to continue to nominate heroes in their communities.

West Pack Lifestyle and Centurion Rekord want to thank residents for participating in the monthly Centurion Hero competition to honour those who stand out in their community.

Those who give without expecting anything in return and who put the needs of others before their own.

We encourage all to continue to nominate heroes in their communities.

Whether it is the man who selflessly helps highlight the plight of residents or the woman who works behind the scenes to ensure a local school runs smoothly – we want to help you thank them and tell their stories!

This week, Rekord spoke to some of the heroes who had been nominated, namely Marius Bester, Hettie Muller and Peter Sutton.

Marius Bester (43) is from Lyttelton Manor and is the Operations Manager at Centurion Hospice. He was surprised to learn that he has been nominated, however, he “is proud of the community’s appreciation”.

“I assist with the hospice’s patients and take care of them. We cook all their meals, and I manage all operational requirements. I also assist with HR components of the organisation.

“I have my own business, Jabu Cakes, and donate the income generated to the hospice.”

Hettie Muller (70) is from Doornkloof and said it was a “wow!” feeling to have learned that she had been nominated as a Centurion hero.

She has been working as a volunteer at the Lyttelton SPCA for the past six years and more specifically with the organisation’s second-hand market.

“In the first five years that I worked there, I raised R1-million with the market, and I raised R80 000 since the beginning of this year,” Muller said.

“I am all for animals,” Muller said.

Peter Sutton (44) lives in Hennops Park and was surprised to learn from Rekord that he had been nominated as a Centurion hero.

He is the DA councillor of ward 78 in Centurion, “and is involved in the metro’s finances as chairperson of the finances oversight committee”.

“I am very involved in community projects and put the interest of the tax payer and that of residents first,” Sutton said.

He said he endeavoured to “put the power back into the hands of the people instead of politicians’ hands”.

“I focus on serving the people and endeavour to improve all people’s lives,” Sutton said.


All you have to do is fill in the form, nominate a community hero and they could stand a chance to win the title as well as R1 000.

Your community hero will also be featured in an article in the Centurion Rekord, both online and in the newspaper, so that they can share their story with the whole of Pretoria.

Nominations will be taken into consideration by the Rekord team and a winner will be selected each month.
