Press release issued 06-12-2012
SAVRALA as an organisation has always been very conscious of its social responsibility and has for years encouraged members to open their hearts and their wallets.
This year SAVRALA’s charity of choice was the SANParks Honorary Rangers, as well as the award-winning Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife Organisation. Both the SANParks Honorary Rangers and Ezemvelo are volunteer charity organisations that are heavily involved in preventing rhino poaching as well as all other areas of conservation.
Having already raised an impressive R100 000 at SAVRALA’s Golf Day on 22 February 2012 at the beautiful Blue Valley Golf Course in Midrand, SAVRALA managed to raise an additional R7 100 on the eve of their annual Manufacturer of the Year (MOTY) Awards held on Friday, 26 October 2012.
The cheque for the second contribution was handed to David Webster, chairperson of the Johannesburg region of the Rangers, at the last SAVRALA NEC (National Executive Committee) meeting by the new incoming President, Marc Corcoran. SAVRALA were in turn presented with a certificate by the Honorary Rangers for their involvement in the worthy cause of saving the rhino and in recognition of their generous contribution.
