KZN to Collect Water for Cape Town

Water collection drive by Gold Circle 


You are most likely aware of the desperate need for water in Cape Town due to the water shortages as result of the drought. As part of a Corporate Social Initiative, Gold Circle, in partnership with New Turf Carriers are going to transport 5 litre bottles of water to Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town, at the end of February 2018. We are appealing to staff, owners, trainers and anyone who is passionate about horses to contribute 1,2,3 or however many sealed bottles of 5L water towards this project. Our aim is to ensure that we have a full truck load to transport to Cape Town.


Horses require between 50 to 100 litres of water per day. We are hoping that this project will make a difference both for the people of Cape Town, in particular staff, owners, trainers and their families at Kenilworth as well as the horses based there.


The bottles of water can be delivered on a daily basis, to the Distribution department at Greyville Racecourse, or the Gold Circle Admin Departments at Summerveld and Ashburton. The deadline for collections is 16:00pm on the 28th February 2018.


Should you have any questions or queries regarding this, please feel free to contact Robert Harvey on 031 314 1833 or e-mail
