Potjiekos competition raises R60 000 for farmers

SHANTEL Selzer, manager of NIC, presented the prize to the winning Tracker team members, Rikus Kaldenberg, Daniel Weston, Pierre Voges and Damien Secheel.

A fundraising potjiekos cook-off hosted by National Insurance Coordinators (NIC) on Monument Road on September 29, raised R60 000 for charity.

The challenge was won by the team from Tracker.

The team won a weekend away at Tsala Safari in Vaalwater.

The money raised was donated by insurance companies, brokers and clients.

The participating teams rolled up their sleeves to outdo each other with their creative recipes.

and David Lindsey of Randow Panelbeaters enoy the event.

One of the judges, former Springbok player Jaco Pretorius, said the competition was aimed at raising funds for charity.

“All the insurance companies came together to help make this wonderful event possible,” he said.

“All the teams had their secret recipes, or the ones they found on Google, or even the ones they had developed themselves.

“When we were judging, we could taste that the proof was in the pudding. There were some plates that were really well put together.”

He said the participants were not inspired by the prizes but rather by the fact that they were doing something for a good cause. Among the judges was also former Springbok rugby player Victor Matfield.

Manager and coordinator of NIC, Shantel Selzer, said the second prize was shared by Brolink and Randor Panel Beaters. The fourth place was taken by Grinmark. King Price was awarded for being the best-spirited team.

The participants received wine and cooler boxes with goodies.

“We have decided to donate the proceeds to the farmers in the Western Cape. We will also be sending them water and food,” Selzer said.
