Feedback from the Ukupha Trivia Evening

Ukupha, meaning “To Give”, is a charitable group based in St Francis Bay, South Africa.
We aim to support charities in our local Kouga region, from children to the elderly, animals to the environment using creative and fun methods raise funds or collect goods.

Ukupha was started in October 2009 by a group of young mothers who felt the need to contribute to their local community. Annual events include the amazing race, a Potjie cook off competition, a Quiz or Bingo evening and the Christmas St Francis Santa Surprise project.

If you would like to learn more or would like to suggest a charity please don’t hesitate to get in touch or follow us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/Ukupha

QUIZ EVENING – organized by Caroline Anderson, Jacky Hay and Nikki Heim

Ukupha St Francis Bay

One of the charities Ukupha chose to support this year was the SPCA Assisi Humansdorp. A quiz night was held on the 20th of October at the St Francis Links. It was very well supported; over 120 people attended the event despite the weather and the bridge closure during the evening.

The night went off without a hitch. There were some interesting rounds that ranged from questions on St Francis, to spelling tests, the picture identification round had a lot of people challenged and name that tune had people humming along. Lucky draws were held throughout the night, two lucky winners also found hiden tickets under their chairs and of course there was the raffle and the auction. A well rounded event that ensured all had fun and most walked off with a prize even if it was for poor spelling or funny answers.

The winning team was Hind It – John Hay, Ross Anderson, Judy Errington and Lisa Libbrecht. Second place went to Team Irish – Paddy and Kirsten Thompson and Steve and Sue McGoldrick.

Ukupha managed to raise just over R16000.00 from the evening.

This will put towards the building of a new cattery at the SPCA. Whilst there is an existing cattery at present it is situated amongst the dog kennels. The dogs may enjoy this, but unfortunately it is very stressful to the cats. If we have funds left over we plan to turn the existing cattery into a puppy run. This will ensure that the puppies have the space to run around in order to get the exercise they need to develop their muscles.

Ukupha could not have achieved this without the help of our very generous sponsors a list of which is available on our Facebook page. However I feel I have to mention Keith Donaldson who provided his services as quiz master for the night and Shelley Donaldson from Kouga Print & Design who printed all our tickets, pamphlets and quiz sheets for the evening. The St Francis Links donated two fourballs that we auctioned off and provided us with the venue and endless support on the evening. Lorrin Jarvis from All Aboard Surf Travel generously donated a 7 night stay in Bali including breakfast and airport transfers (excluding airfare); this was won by Keon De Beer who collected his prize on the night.
