Staying true to its promise, a company has donated cricket equipment to four nearby schools.

On Tuesday last week, Boxer management and staff joined Proteas cricketer JP Duminy and coaches of his JP21 Project to do the official handover of cricket kits to AZ Berman, Cascade, Beaconview and Hyacinth primary schools.

This was the result of a promise made in May, when a Boxer Store opened in Town Centre (“Boxer Store continues historic relationship”, People’s Post, 16 May).

At the time, marketing manager Andrew Mills said the schools were all within 1km of the store and as part of their corporate social investment in the community they would offer coaching facilities to the schools between now and November.

Nigel Boesak and Fahiem Salie will be the two coaches helping with coaching during the term.

The handover included a one-day cricket clinic that focused on fielding and other drills aimed at improving the young players’ abilities.

As part of the kit, the schools each received two bats, helmets, knee pads and other equipment.

The handover took place at Yellowwood Primary School.

JP21 Project manager Jamaine Cloete thanked Mills and the store’s management for the donation.

“This donation will really make a difference and go a long way,” said Cloete.

Duminy also spoke to the children at the event, encouraging them to find positive rolemodels in the community.

He further motivated them to continue playing sport.
