TRASH Observatory River Clean-up Fundraiser


TRASH Observatory Community River Clean-up in association with Friends of the Liesbeek Annual Fundraising Event

Over R10 000 worth of prizes to be given away! 

This year, we are running our very popular annual TRASH Observatory Community River Clean-up event online as it is a vital part of our fundraising activities. Funds from this online event go towards the costs of the monthly clean-ups, staff, equipment and keeping our stretch of the Liesbeek River beautiful and litter free. This is an important green space within the city for all creatures to enjoy and we appreciate your support.

This year we have over R10 000 of sponsored items, packaged into different prizes to reward our donors. We will give you one entry to the giveaway for every R20 donated (i.e R100 donated = 5 tickets to the draw).

You could stand a chance to win:

  • For undersea fun, we have vouchers from the Two Oceans Aquarium;
  • For the shoppers, we have V&A Waterfront vouchers;
  • For the adventurous, we have a trip for two around the peninsular from Cape Side Car Adventures
  • For the cook who hates shopping, we have UCook vouchers;
  • And for the furry ones, Happy Hounds vouchers;
  • Chin-chin with your favourite cocktail with local gin from Woodstock Gin and Hope Distillery;
  • A spoiling treat from the Vineyard Hotel;
  • A voucher from the (voted by the public) Best pizza place in Cape Town, our very own Ferdinandos;
  • And a voucher from Naan Better - the BEST curry (you NEED to taste their food!);
  • From TapiTapi, vouchers for the most exciting ice-cream in town;
  • A voucher from Animals Have Rights for a pizza-and-movie night in an intimate venue;
  • For the gardeners we have Fynbos Life vouchers;
  • A voucher from Tallis who will make you even more beautiful;
  • We have some lovely artwork from local photographers such as Helen Walne and Sarah Schumann;
