Franschhoek Wine Valley

Please support the Langrug back to school drive

On 14 March 42 shacks in the Langrug community in Franschhoek were destroyed by an uncontrolled fire. Many unexpectedly lost their homes and possessions. Although Disaster Management and support groups are in full swing supporting the community where they can, there is still a dire need for new school uniforms for the children affected by this disaster. Franschhoek Wine Valley and Huguenot Fine Chocolates in Franschhoek has joined forces to raise some much needed funding towards this project, but we need your help.

With Easter coming up, Huguenot Fine Chocolates has kindly sponsored the biggest chocolate Easter bunny they could make.

This delectable 13kg bunny is now on auction and we would like to invite you to support us by  sending in your silent bid. The highest bid received will become the new owner of this unique Easter bunny. Bidding starts at R 2 000. Please submit your bid to us at by no later than Thursday 24 March 2016.

The money received from the highest bidder will all be going back to the community of Langrug in support of their Back to School drive.

Any questions about further assistance of the fire victims can be directed to Jomine at or 021 876 2861.

Thank you for your support!
