PS4L-Charity-Golf-Day-2015Play Sport4Life, the dynamic non-profit organisation operating in the Kensington-Factreton-Maitland areas, is holding it first Charity Golf Day on November 20 to raise funds for community sports projects in the neighbourhood.

The event will be held at the Mowbray Golf Club and Play Sport4Life is finalising negotiations with a few celebrity South African sports personalities to support the organisation on the day.

Play Sport4Life has also secured FNB, Engen and Streamline Agencies as major sponsors and the many prizes on offer will include golfing and sports equipment.

The head of Play Sport4Life, Miles October, says the organisation has gone ahead in leaps and bounds  since it started last year.

“It has been an eventful first year for Play Sport4Life, but we are just getting started,” he said.

“Thus far, we have made great strides in bringing the local communities together and forging new friendships through our multi-faceted sports programmes and initiatives in the Kensington, Factreton, and Maitland areas.

“Play Sport4Life  has grown tremendously as an NPO since we were established in 2014. Our soccer and cricket tournament for juniors in the Factreton in the area, was an unqualified success. We had over 1000 kids from the area participating in these”

“But there is a mountain of work to be done if we want to achieve our objectives in the community.

“However, nothing comes without a cost.  There are overheads involved in organising our community events and we are no different from other NPOs – we need support. The Play Sport4Life Golf Day will help us help the kids in the community.”

The focus of the organisation at this stage is the Kensington-Factreton-Windermere area but it plans to launch community projects elsewhere in the areas of need around Cape Town.

In addition to the major sponsorships from FNB, Engen and Streamline Agencies Play Sport4Life has also secured a number of other corporates and individuals  to sponsor a hole, prizes and enter a team

“The Mowbray course is one of the most popular and scenic courses in the Peninsula. It will make for a great day for a great cause. The event will culminate with a prize-giving ceremony and auction at the 19th hole,” Mr October said.
