Denver Struwig Shark Fund

17,082.00 ZAR raised so far, with 0 Activists helping out*

The target set for this project has been reached. The support has been exceptional and all costs related to Denver’s medical expenses will be met. Full details and how we plan to go forward with the campaign will be posted on the Friends of Chintsa website shortly.

On Friday 22nd July Denver Struwig was attacked by a shark while out surfing. Denver survived the attack and is healing slowly but surely at home in Chintsa.

The Denver Struwig Shark Attack Fund has been set-up to assist Denver in paying his medical fees which have amounted to over R 35 000. If donations exceed the amount needed by D the fund will continue to support any future local shark attack victims. To read a full article about the incident, published by ZigZag, click here.
On 6th August the Country Bumpkin restaurant in Chintsa will host the D-Day fundraising dinner - MC'd by famous surfer Greg Emslie & the D man himself! Dinner is served at 6.30pm and costs R150 per head with R90 of this going directly into the Shark Attack fund. 25% of the bar takings from the event will also go into the fund while other local businesses - the Barefoot Cafe & Michealas Restaurant- will be donating 40% of their bar takings on the 6th August. Raffle tickets will be on sale all week for R25 with the prize draw on Saturday night, after dinner, at 8.30pm. To see what is up from grabs in the raffle click here! Please make a reservation direct with the Country Bumpkin on 043 738 5226, if you would like to attend the event.
