Go! & Express - - IN KING - SIVENATHI GOSA

Guardians of Hope will be host­ing a potjie com­pe­ti­tion and fam­ily fun day on Satur­day at Sho­far Chris­tian Church in Bea­con Bay at 12pm.

The en­try fee is R250 per team of one to four peo­ple. The potjies will be judged at 12pm and served at 1pm for R40.

Founder and house mother Elaine Brenkman said the pur­pose of the event was to cre­ate awareness of the or­gan­i­sa­tion while rais­ing funds.

“We pro­vide a home, love and care to aban­doned ba­bies, as well as those given up at birth by their par­ents. Wher­ever pos­si­ble, we seek and sup­port fam­ily re­uni­fi­ca­tion. If not, we sup­port adop­tion pro­cesses,” said Brenkman.

“We have 17 potjie en­tries so far. We would love to have 20 potjies and we ex­pect at least 300 vis­i­tors on the day.

“Al­ter­na­tively, bring your pic­nic bas­ket, and en­joy a fun fam­ily day from 11am on­wards. There will be re­fresh­ments, pop­corn and candy floss on sale,” she said.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to en­ter the potjie com­pe­ti­tion please con­tact Ni­cole du Plooy on 084-520-3242 or e-mail her at nicolek4@gmail.com.
