And they’re off…

One of the events in the Dar social calendar is the annual Goat Races.  This is a good excuse to dress up, drink and place bets on the various races.  Plus it’s all for good causes.  Nine local charities working with children with disabilities, orphans and women’s entrepreneurship are supported and nearly £50,000 was raised in 2012. As goats are not known to race against each other, they are encouraged by both a team of people that run behind them and a bar to scoop up the late comers.  All in all a rather fun day out…
