Havilah has a Heart Charity Handover 31 January 2015

02 Feb 2015

From all of us at Havilah, we want to say a very big thank you to all who supported our annual charity drive over December and to those who were involved in the hand over function on Saturday evening by way of sponsorship of lucky draw prizes & goodie bag items as well as to those who attended the function. Thank you to Dave from Above & Beyond for the sound & lighting as well as to Fabian from Brew & Braai for keeping the gents well hydrated with his brew of craft beer.

Havilah recognises the festive season as a Season for Giving, and every December we select a charity and pledge to donate 10% of our PANDORA and counter sales to that charity.

Last year we decided to divide the funds raised and donate these to two charities, namely Port Elizabeth Animal Rescue and Love Story.

Port Elizabeth Animal Rescue (P.E.A.R) consists of 3 volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate and rehome homeless dogs in Port Elizabeth. All P.E.A.R dogs are steralised, inoculated, dewormed, deflead, micro chipped and provided with whatever vet care they need. P.E.A.R does not have their own shelter so relies on foster homes. P.E.A.R sterilises dogs from needy areas in Port Elizabeth. They also provide kennels, blankets and food when possible. To enable P.E.A.R to steralise as many dogs as possible donations towards steralisations are welcome.

Love Story is a non-profit organisation that seeks to meet the needs of our community. We operate in and around Port Elizabeth and are involved in a variety of projects- soup kitchens, creche support, clothing/toy distribution, hospital handouts, etc. Our aim is to show love and give hope to the poor, needy and marginalised people of our community. Jesus says
"Whatever we do for the least of these, we do for Him.”
Although the need is huge, the difference starts with one. Like the story of the
Good Samaritan who stopped for one beaten up traveler.

We were really pleased to be able to hand over a cheque for R 13 000.00 to each of these two charities on the evening of the 31st of January 2015.

The function was a tremendous success with entertainment by the wonderful Niqui Cloete-Barrass, complimentary bubbly, canape’s and wine as well as a goodie bag for each guest and plenty of exciting lucky draw prizes.
