Picklepot Café - Restart

Personal message

Dear friends of Picklepot Café, Howick, Kwazulu- Natal

  Craig has transformed Picklepot Café over the last few years into the awesome venue that you all know and support.   On Wednesday night 14 July, Picklepot Café experienced a burglary in the midst of the week of unrest that affected most of KZN. Craig had decided to keep Picklepot closed for the week until the roads were once again safe to travel and had locked everything up as securely as possible.    The burglars caused damage to the main doors of the restaurant and pickle factory and stole most of the food stock ingredients from the cold storage facilities. They also stole computer and music equipment as well as the backup batteries which keep the till and card machine working during power outages.   The police have opened a case and we are hopeful that the insurance claim will be processed promptly. For the next few weeks the Picklepot will only open intermittently depending on the availability of supplies. This campaign is intended to help Craig speed up the process of restarting Picklepot Café which in turn will help the Picklepot staff get back to their usual hours of work preparing the delicious food that you are accustomed to.   We therefore appeal to you to please assist the Picklepot if you can afford it,  by donating any amount to support the fundraising target of R30,000.   Thanks everyone.   Craig's Family

Dear friends of Picklepot Café, Howick, KwaZulu-Natal.

Our brother ( and son and uncle ) Craig has transformed Picklepot Café over the last few years into the awesome venue that you all know and support.

On Wednesday night 14 July, Picklepot Café experienced a burglary in the midst of the week of unrest that affected most of KZN. Craig had decided to keep Picklepot closed for the week until the roads were once again safe to travel and had locked everything up as securely as possible.
