Birdies and bogeys played their part in Harold Cressy High’s fundraising drive to complete its new school hall project.

The fund received a significant boost with a cash injection of more than R100 000 from its well-supported golf day that was held at King David Mowbray Golf Club on Thursday 26 May.

The event was organised by the not-for-profit Kensington based community organisation, Play Sport4Life, and the Harold Cressy Alumni Association.

At the event, with more than 100 players participating, a number of local businesses such as Ludski Auto Repairs, Gatti Ice Cream, Spitfire Grill, Market Toyota Athlone, At Your Service and Giant Hyper played their part by sponsoring holes.

The head of Play Sport4Life, Miles October, who is also a Cressy old boy, said the response was overwhelming – particularly from “ex-Cressyites”.

“It is awesome to see how keen the old students were to get involved to play, perform or sponsor in an event that will benefit the school in the long term.

“We have even received a hole sponsorship from an ex-student in Australia.

“It is an ambitious project that the Harold Cressy Alumni Association has undertaken. It already has the first phase, the basic school hall, in place.

“It now needs a further R1.5m to complete the second phase, the ‘wings’ attached to the building.”
