This year was our eighth annual Potjiekos competition, but the second year that we raised money on behalf of the Beeld Children’s Fund (Kinderfonds) in association with FHL Contracting (Pty) Ltd. The teams had to represent any country that takes part in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Despite of the cold and rainy weather, the teams started setting up the stands from around 9:00 on the 4th of September 2015. Thys, Die Bosveldklong and Mario was the entertainersfor the day.

Thirst Pub & Grill arranged for a beer garden, and light meals during the morning.

It was a day full of fun, music, laughs, lucky draws and all in good spirit – for charity.

The judges were Thys, die Bosveldklong, Derick Hougaard and Adrie van Staden (Beeld Kinderfonds).

The Irish Team (The CMV Admin Team) won first prize, with the Samoan, and Italian teams close on their heels.

Michial Mutafchiev, one of CMV’s clients, donated soft drinks for the orphanage and he also surprised everyone by singing a song for us.

Two boxes of Louis Oosthuizen’s wines were donated and sold for a total of R2400.

During the 2014 Potjiekos, ChassEveritt donated a 1995 World Cup Rugby ball, signed by all the captains of all the teams taking part in that World Cup. The ball was sold for R13 000 and then donated back, and then sold again for R10 000. Totalling a massive R23 000.

After the prize-giving and auction, the total for the day was on R90 400, and Charl Mocke and Christo Lourens decided to up to total to R100 000.

We would like to thank all the teams for entering. It was a day of great fun. Thank you Cornerhouse on Conan, Greycon Construction, Leapfrog, Anrique Plant Hire, Thirst Pub & Grill, but especially FHL Contracting; our co-sponsors.
