The Island’s South African community came together to mark
Heritage Day recently with a DQ sponsored event hosted by two
members of our team.
Every year, South Africans mark Heritage Day by remembering and
celebrating their heritage and culture in a meaningful way. The day
is affectionately referred to by South Africans as “National
Braai Day” (a South African barbeque).
The event at Union Mills Football Club was organised by South
African DQ employees, Chris Walton and Dash
Pather. Dash and Chris moved to the Island last autumn and
wanted to keep alive the tradition in their new home.
‘Heritage Day is a time to come together as South Africans
to celebrate our culture and the diversity of our beliefs and
traditions. It is also an excellent excuse to have a boerewors roll
or two!’ explained Chris, an associate with the dispute
‘The Island has a strong South African community so it was
great to be joined by some of those who have relocated to the Isle
of Man and share stories and experiences over some good food and
Dash, who works within DQ’s corporate and commercial
department, added: ‘A sincere thank you to all who came along
to celebrate our National Braai Day. It was a great afternoon and
thankfully we were blessed with sunshine and a wonderful Braai. We
cannot wait to see everyone again next year!’
Chris and Dash would like to thank DQ for sponsoring the event
and Function Caterers.
