At the tournament, 16 teams strutted their stuff. However, it was the team from Indongo Toyota who performed best, while Harley-Davidson took the award for team spirit and the title of best dressed went to Hartlief.
“Whilst our walls and love give comfort and assurances to children under our care, this donation goes a long way in ensuring these children sleep with a full stomach and play with enthusiasm from the energy of a meal you provided,” said Marietjie de Klerk of Hope Village. “They will attend school with happy faces, clean uniforms and play with tinkling hearts. It is greatly appreciated.”
Hope Village gives loving, caring homes for abandoned and orphaned, vulnerable children infected and/or affected by HIV/Aids. In these homes their basic needs for food, protection and accommodation are met, but also their need for love, affection, and security.
“We endeavour to help each child to reach his/her full potential educationally, psychologically, emotionally and physically,” De Klerk said, adding that “we give them an opportunity to go to school, to do sport, and to do arts and crafts. In this way, we want to help them to grow up and become productive members of society.”
