Diederick Stopforth is the perfect example of the phrase "not all heroes wear capes".

Following the devastating fires that swept through Knysna on Wednesday, Diederick Stopforth put a call out to the public seeking one hundred experienced firefighters to join him on a mission to Knysna, to assist with putting out fires in the area.

Stopforth also reached out to corporate companies, who exceeded his expectations, contributing more than what was expected towards the good cause.

We've more than doubled the hundred number of firefighters

The goodness of the people has been absolutely amazing
