Owl Rescue Centre Plastic Recycling Project
Gabi in our underwriting department came across the Owl Rescue Centre Plastic Recycling Project in June and suggested that the Johannesburg branch supported this worthy cause. We thought it was a GREAT idea especially with this year’s Environment Day Theme “Beat Plastic Pollution” together with one of our Brand Values – Making A Difference.
We are proud to share with you that our first full bag has been collected already.
This bag filled with plastic bottles & containers makes one Recycled Plastic Owl House.

Grey Boys High - 2015
The Garrun Group recently sponsored the Boarder boys rugby and hockey jerseys for the annual Border vs Daypot derby at The Grey in Port Elizabeth this year.
The boarding house "Meriway" is celebrating it's 100 year. It comprises of approximately 150 boys from grade 8 through to grade 12.
David Cronje from Cronje Outeniqua Garrun attended the official jersey handout and was treated to a special evening by the boarders who sang their traditional boarder songs which showed the spirit and camaraderie of the Boarding House.
Much to everyones surprise the Hockey Boarders pulled off a surprise victory 3 -2 against the daypot's. The rugby boarders showed their metal once again and played some outstanding rugby in very difficult conditions notching up another victory 45 -5 against the daypot's. The rugby boarders are yet to lose this fixture.
It was truly a great honour and privilege to be associated with such a great and prestigious event.
