Rӧssmund Supports Save the Rhino Trust

As a commitment to support Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) in its mission to save one of the most majestic, ancient and noble beasts of the wild from extinction, Rössmund Golf Course hosts a grand annual event to the benefit of Namibia’s black rhino population, the SRT Corporate Golf Day.

Held in conjunction with the Golf Day, in 2016, Rössmund decided to call upon Swakopmund’s matriarchal leaders to help with the cause, and in November, the female business leaders of the coastal community, those outstanding women with power and compassion, were all invited to attend an executive breakfast at Rössmund.

The breakfast and golf event was a great success and has become a highlight on Swakopmund’s social calendar – with many already pledging their support for the event in 2017. Since its inception in 2015, the event has seen to financial support of between N$130 000 to N$150 000 being raised in aid of SRT. Proceeds from this event go directly to support Save the Rhino Trust.

Hannelie Turner, Fundraising Manager at SRT explained, “Community support has always been one of the most important elements of our success. The SRT team has tremendous appreciation for the funding received from Rӧssmund Golf Course, their sponsors and the businesswomen who support this event. It is initiatives like these that allow us to continue our work and save these magnificent creatures for future generations.”
