FUNDRAISING EVENTS & CAMPAIGNS

We have a number of exciting fundraising events in the pipeline, but unfortunately, many of these are on hold due to the current COVID-19 risks. Please keep an eye this, and on our Facebook, page for more details.

Civvies Day for Rhino

September is World Rhino Month, as well as South African Heritage Month. We urge the youth of South Africa to play their part in conserving our wildlife and preserving our national heritage.

We invite all schools in KZN to select one day in September to have a “Civvies Day for Rhino” where all learners pay R10 to wear civvies to school.

uBhejane Xtreme Mountain Bike Challenge

Are you tough enough? The uBhejane Xtreme Mountain Bike Challenge is an iconic – and arguably one of South Africa’s toughest – mountain bike challenges. The 2020 iSimangaliso Event was an opportunity for riders to cycle through SA’s first World Heritage Site. The event includes four distances, ranging from 130 km to 350 km.  uBhejane X is a registered NPO and the race is a fundraiser for rhino conservation activities of Project Rhino and Helping Rhinos.

Benny Bushwhacker: A Comedy of Conservation

The funniest man in conservation, Benny Bushwhacker – aka Ben Voss – is coming to Hilton College for a once-off performance in aid of Project Rhino.

Benny Bushwhacker: Human Nature, opened at the 2019 National Arts Festival Makhanda (Grahamstown) where he won two Standard Bank Ovation Awards and has continued receiving rave reviews and full houses.

The genial South African, who recently trended worldwide for banging heads with swashbuckling British survivalist, Bear Grylls, has been touring South Africa’s theatres and festivals with a hilarious yet sobering look at the collision between man and environment.

Date and Time: TBC

Venue: Hilton College Theatre

Tickets: R160, available from webtickets

Rob Caskie: An African Odyssey

Rob Caskie is one of South Africa’s most sought after keynote speakers and story tellers, with historical accounts which captivate and motivate audiences.

“I share human stories which engage audiences and challenge the way they interact, work and lead their lives. My stories are essentially about human beings in extremis, and their behaviour when ‘the chips are down’. Like tea bags, human beings only reveal their true strength in hot water. Epics of human struggle and triumphs of the human spirit create fantastic canvasses by which modern situations may be measured…”

The theme of the evening: An African Odyssey – A romp through the last 200 years – will take you through South Africa’s diverse and special history over the last two centuries or so. From the arrival of Nguni people around 1300 years ago, to the arrival of the European settlers in the Cape, Shaka Zulu’s ascendancy and the Great Trek, it promises to be a night to remember.

Date and Time: TBC

Venue: Hilton College Theatre

Tickets: R180, available from webtickets

Profits from the evening will support Project Rhino’s conservation work.
