A letter from The Cows
Excitement brewed as we commenced packing the ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œmost amazing GABRAN Goodie Bag everÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â at the localÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Kraal. We packed and packed and packedÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ and thought we were doneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ when ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œI am dropping off someÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â lastminute dot comÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â goodies on TuesdayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â was heardÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ Once again, the Durban Cow Herd were blown away onÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â the generous sponsorship of various goodies for our goodie bags.
THE COWS ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ DURBAN HERD, would like to thank you CMH NissanÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Durban, most sincerely for donating to us, an assortment of goodies ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ lanyards, water bottles and drawstring bags! You have assisted us in not only raising much needed funds for our little superheroes fighting various forms of Cancer but exceeding our fundraising target that we set for ourselves this year! Without your sponsorship, this would never have been achieved!
Thanks to various sponsorships our goodie bags and raffles are becoming the talk of the ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œbarnyardÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â and more and more cyclists are joining us, getting involved and helping us in turn increase the amount we are able to raise. The fun and social atmosphere of the 3 day cycle event, with some camping, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œgrazingÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â and even a bit of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œGABRANÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s GOT TALENTÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ there were those that could sing, and there were those, that well…..provided much
needed ab-exercises from laughter, was superb!
Our ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Love Living LifeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ slogan is always foremost in our minds, mixed with an overdose of enthusiasm; #GABRAN2015 was mindblowing!
Our big reveal happened on the 6th September 2015ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦.through raffles, fudge and coconut ice sales and additional monetary donations we managed to raise R150 000!!!!
The event was an absolute hit with ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œrepeat GABRANersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â and a host of first-timers, having such a great time the FO-MOOOOO is at a high and so the recruiting of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œnewbiesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â for 2016, has begun in earnest.
Like all good things, #GABRAN2015 came to an end but the 2016 dates have been cast in stoneÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ 19th to 21st August 2016! And we cannot wait to go bigger!
On behalf of THE COWS ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ DURBAN HERD, we humbly thank you from the bottom of our ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œhooves and uddersÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â for your generous contribution, support and belief in #GABRAN2015.
