Dundee raises more funds for Tsumeb community
Dundee Precious Metals hosted its sixth annual Golf Fun Day fundraiser at the Tsumeb Golf Course on Saturday, 20 August.
The event is held annually, with the aim of generating funds for the Tsumeb Community Trust.
Last weekend’s event attracted players from all corners of the country, with others also travelling from neighbouring South Africa for a chance to compete.
A total of N$175,500 was raised and will be used to pay for community improvement projects.
The golfing fundraiser saw 30 teams tee off and vie for various prizes, including the illustrious floating trophy.
Crossroads walked away with the ultimate bragging rights, as winners.
The Tsumeb Community Trust is one of the entities Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb has put in place, in support of the Namibian government’s efforts to eradicate poverty.
Dundee Vice President and Managing Director, Zebra Kasete, thanked all in attendance for making the event a success.
“None of this would be possible without you, our partners and sponsors. You made today happen, and we at Dundee would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to each and every one of you,” Kasete said.
Also in attendance was Deputy Minister of Public Enterprises and former Tsumeb Mayor, Engel Nawatiseb, and current Tsumeb Mayor Veueza Kasiringua.
Nawatiseb acknowledged Dundee for coming up with the unique event, which attracts various stakeholders in the spirit of Harambee, and contributes positively towards nationhood and development.
