Constantia locals raising funds for artificial sports field turf at needy school

Sporting Chance and the Constantia Residents and Ratepayers Association are collecting funds in order to lay down artificial grass for a disadvantaged school in the area.

According to Brad Bing, Managing Director at Sporting Chance, the field is either dusty in summer or muddy when it eventually rains.

He is very passionate about getting kids active in sport and felt he needed to do something about the wet or dusty field.

What I am doing at the moment is to go around to all the residents of Constantia to put down some money to provide extra turf for those kids to be able to play sports...

In order to execute the plan they would need about R650 000, says Peter Stenslunde, Committee member of the Constantia Residents and Ratepayers Association.

So far they have managed to collect R260 through putting out appeals on social media networks and speaking to businesses in the area.

To contribute, visit the Constantia Residents and Ratepayers Association Facebook page.

We launched this appeal about ten days ago and we looking at collecting at least a R100 from each household in Constantia...
