Cape Town's homeless to enjoy Springbok final at special screening
A volunteer group in Cape Town will host at least 150 homeless guests to enjoy the Rugby World Cup final on Saturday morning.
The Ladles of Love soup kitchen and feeding scheme will share the gees when the Springboks clash with England.
The game will be watched on big screens at The Hope Exchange in Roeland Street tomorrow at 11am.
Danny Diliberto, the founder at Ladles of Love, says his supportive family have helped him make the event possible.
