Our for the love of CONCRETE Design and Art Competitions raised a hefty sum for DARG (Domestic Animal Rescue Group), which we know will be spent well. We’d specifically like to thank Johan Coetzee and his team of experts of World of Decorative Concrete (WODC) for their continued support of this project and for their and hard work. They went all out to ensure it was not only inspiring, but also a feast for the eyes.”
