Third DARG lucky draw

The Domestic Animal Rescue Groups (Darg) Christmas market took place on Saturday December 3, drawing hundreds of visitors who enjoyed browsing the bric-a-brac and book tables. Darg volunteers, from left, Phil Tilson, Jean Devlin, Lindsay Shirley, Carol Fisher, Helen Osborne and fundariser Debra Buys, also had the chance to meet Father Christmas, Warren Sihlangu.

One of the Domestic Animal Rescue Group’s (Darg) long-time corporate donors will be using Facebook Live to broadcast a live lucky draw to its 49 000 international followers on Sunday December 11.

In 2014, Biltongmakers.com was the first corporate company to come on board in the drive to upgrade Darg’s facility in Hout Bay. At the time, the firm sponsored new fencing and the concrete base of a dog run so that the dogs were no longer standing in mud and water.

A year later, Biltongmakers.com raised R34 305 to buy Darg a bakkie as the old one was old frequently broke down and was “pieced together with rope and hope”.

Biltongmakers.com owner Lo Krijger said it was the first time the company was using Facebook Live to cover an event on its popular Facebook page, Biltong Boerewors and Potjiekos.

“This will be the third event we will be doing with Darg.

“Darg is a very good cause,” he said.
