The SA Rugby Legends Association will head to Ngodwana in Mpumalanga this weekend.
This follows an invitation from a long-time friend of Sarla, former Lions and SA Sevens player Marc Watson, as well as Sappi and Joubert & Sons – two well-known and established companies in the area.
Around 30 Legends will help to pack food parcels and essential items for the community and host a coaching clinic for local children.
The Legends include Ryan Kankowski, John Mametsa, Adriaan Richter, Ian McIntosh, Wynand Olivier, Adrian Garvey, Ethienne Reynecke, Quintin Geldenhuys, John Allan and Dick Muir.
Following a Legends shooting competition, 130 local children will participate in the coaching clinic, where they will also receive T-shirts and be treated to boerewors rolls on the Ngodwana (Sappi) rugby field.
After the clinic, the Legends will head to the Joubert & Sons Padstal, to pack food and essential items for elderly community members in need at the Silver Days and Wenakker homes.
'We’re very excited to be hosting this clinic and bringing rugby to children who may not normally have the opportunity to experience it, especially of late,' said Sarla CEO Stefan Terblanche.
'Sport has the power to bring people together and this event is proof of that. Thanks to Marc Watson, Sappi and Joubert & Sons for their valuable support.'
