Gift of the Givers hosted a Rugby Tournament with Ikageng Rugby Development Club at the CPUT Campus in Bellvulle over the Easter weekend. 160 rugby players (girls and boys) from disadvantaged homes, ages 14 to 18, residing in Potchefstroom had the opportunity to play against other teams. This event was organised to foster teamwork and togetherness, to empower, mentor, cultivate and empower them for a better sustainable future.
In attendance were members of the WC Sports Council, City of Cape Town Arts and Recreation. Gift of the Givers provided accommodation for five days, Thursday till Monday and catered for two meals per day.
The event pulled in excess of 20 000 spectators and members of other rugby clubs. Water was distributed throughout the event. Players, the coach and members of the training squad received luxury food packs for their bus journey back to Potchefstroom. They all expressed their gratitude to Gift of the Givers and said without our support it would not have been possible.
