Sponsor signs on for Ward 34 sports day

2019-07-17 06:02

THE popular annual Jerry Barnes Ward 34 Sports Day is scheduled for July 27 this year.

A huge boost for this year’s event is the inclusion of an official major sponsor and partner, Just Build.

According to Just Build CEO Naseem Badat, his company wanted to be part of the event last year but they were too late to the party.

“This is a good event to bring community members together, especially to keep the youth in sports. We are glad to be part of it and our friendship with this project, community and organisers will go a long way. We are also happy that the founder of the event confirmed that other teams, children and wards from other areas are also welcome, so it’s not restricted to only Ward 34,”said Badat.

Event founder and organiser Jerry Barnes said this year’s event is going to be family and community oriented and it will officially be known as the Just Build Annual Sports Day.

“This time around the event won’t only be about soccer and netball or fun walkers/runners, but it’s designed to bring all family members together for a day of fun and sports. We will have jumping castles and stalls on site. Community members are free to come and sell during the event. We want to create an atmosphere where parents and their kids will be able to have fun while taking part in sport,”he said.

The soccer will include six senior, six U17 and six senior ladies teams. Teams are asked to register soon to avoid disappointment.

The curtain raiser will be a match between Panorama Old Timers and visiting Golden Oldies.

For more information, and to confirm participation, Barnes can be contacted at 8 Redwood Crescent, Panorama Gardens; at 083 521 9553; or via e-mail at jerryb.barnes228@gmail.com
