Save our local pub

Save our local pub

Personal message

My name is Janine van der Riet-Neethling (41), and I am raising funds for Dung Beetle Pub in the beautiful Klein Karoo town of Barrydale.

So that we can save our local pub, restaurant and Lodge by not closing down, so that we can pay the municipality bills, electricity and ongoing expenditure while still being closed during Covid 19 pandemic.

By donating, we can try stay afloat while we wait for this covid 19 pandemic to end and finally open our doors fully, and then we can buy stock to continue serving our local community at their favourite pub, where everyone gets together and catch up.

Municipality is around R1900 monthly. Electricity is seperate at around R1000 weekly.

My husband and myself don't get a full salary at the moment and as this lockdown extends, our savings will be depleted. We also have 7 staff without an income. And if we dont stay afloat right now, we wont be able to open our doors again. 

If we manage to survive until lockdown ends, we need to buy new food stock as well as bar stock to open again. We also have a Lodge/Backpackers which we will have to stock up with coffee, tea, soap, etc once we open again.

We are now doing food deliveries to try and stay afloat, but the expenses are currently more than the income.
