South African Rugby Legends Association, an NPONPC is raising funds during the Covid 19 crises to feed disadvantaged communities in the Western Cape, Kwazulu Natal and Gauteng areas. We hope to create sustainability during this pandemic and show our communities that we support them. We also encourage other businesses and like- minded people to join this initiative through giving back.
Many of our Rugby Legends have given up their time to participate in the packing and distribution of food parcels to over 1800 families each week with the support of Cell C, Richmark Holdings, Tightline Fisheries and SPAR.With the handing out of these food parcels, we would like to create more awareness throughout the sporting fraternity that we need to “make a difference” as much as we can to those that are in dire need of food. No child should go to bed on an empty stomach!
Through the support of Cell C and Richmark Holdings we have managed to purchase food parcels for over 1800 families each week and hope to grow this number through other donations and sponsors.
