My name is Alicia Steinz and I am raising funds for my sister's son Jaunre Botes (17) from Vryheid KZN who was chosen to go on a rugby tour in Italy at the end of September.
Jaunre will be part of the ITEC Country Districts Rugby U19 team. He was selected through a professional selector's based on his performance at the VKB U19 Platteland Week in Reitz.
I would like to help them make this dream come true for him to go on this tour as he has worked very hard to get this far. The cost of this tour is too much for them to cover by themselves. He was also offered a discounted scholarship at the Sharks Academy but unfortunately that they won't be able to afford at the moment.
If I can just help them to let him go on tour then that already would mean the world to him.
The costs for the tour is calculated as below:
Base tour price - R33 590.00
Airport tax - R 5 500.00
Travel insurance - R 340.00
Visa - €90.00
This will mean great exposure and prospective opportunities for him. It will also allow him to grow better in this sport.
*Funds raised will go directly to the sports tour operator*
