Shooting the breeze

2016-10-26 06:00

THANK you very much to my friends and local businessmen, Karanichhas outlets boss, Bablo, and Poobie Naidoo of Poobie Naidoo’s Sports for saving my event once again.

The new Ward 34 councillor Mike Amod from Eastwood will also play an important role by providing the basic equipment needed on the day.

As the founder of the annual community sports day for areas under Ward 34 and nearby areas Eastwood, Panorama, Cinderella Park, Glenwood, Thembalihle, Tamboville, Malivana and Madiba, over the years I found it difficult to always beg, convince and plead the same people get on board and support my event.

I am glad to say that Bablo and Naidoo made everything easy for me. It was just a phone call away, few e-mails and both said “how can we come on board and help you”.

I find it difficult to believe that only business people from outside my ward or my area came on board.

Both gentlemen shared my positive sentiments and said what I’m doing will take the entire community, especially the youth, away from social ills.

Our community sports day is also open to other wards and areas.

This year the event will be divided into four categories - seniors (open), ladies, boys U15 and men O35 (Golden Oldies).

The occasion will include the Mountain Rise Dog Unit, who will put on a dog display and will talk about the dangers of drugs.

Our guest speaker will be the newly elected Ward 34 councillor, Mike Amod, who will address the sporting community.

Anyone are interested in booking a stall at the event must contact the organiser. Business people interested in coming on board as funders, partners or sponsors are also welcome.

For more information, I can be contacted on
