Four men from Rylands walked away with the top prizes in the annual Thunee Competition and Bhangra hosted by Spur to raise money for those less fortunate.

This year’s competition was held at Inside on Fire in Blouberg on Saturday 6 August.

All proceeds from the event are to be used towards assisting underprivileged children from various safe houses and impoverished areas with items like school clothes, shoes, stationery and food.

The card game started around 16:00, followed by a Bhangra.

Durban bunny chows, samoosas and vedhas were on sale throughout the evening and was definitely what the doctor ordered on that cold winter’s evening.

The event was well attended and enjoyed by all who were there.

The complicated card game, Thunee, is played in pairs and after a nail-biting final, this year’s winners were Kevin Kandasamy and Preneil Naidoo with the runners-up being Prakash Gangen and Sundren Moodley.

Each winner walked away with a Skywings Tandem Paragliding experience and each runner-up received a Killarney Training Centre Full Day Advanced Driving Course.

A raffle was also run with the main prize being a weekend away to Caledon Hotel and Spa and the second prize being a family photo shoot.

A total of R31 228 was raised at the event.

The organisers, Loshnie Pillay and Niraj Soman, would like to thank all the sponsors, volunteers who assisted on the night and supporters of this event.

“It is only through the support of the community that we’re able to continue making a difference,” says Loshnie.
