Players’ Charity gives back to the kids in Wellington

The Players’ Charity made a R12 000 donation to the Andrew Murray Children’s Home in Wellington.

The Players’ Charity is an initiative created by the professional players in South Africa aimed at contributing to charitable organisations in their communities.

Every year, professional rugby players in South Africa have the opportunity to make donations to worthy causes in their playing communities.

The professional players in Wellington chose the Andrew Murray Children’s Home in Wellington as their preferred charity.

The Andrew Murray Children’s Home is a place of safety for children in the region. It provides shelter for children of 0-18 years, of all races and both sexes. These kids come from seriously poor social backgrounds, and struggle from emotional and physical difficulties and hardships.

The Boland players were represented by Kenan Cronje, Chaney Willemse, McMillan Muller, Francois Esterhuyzen and Stefan Grundlingh, who paid the home a visit and handed over the R12 000 Players’ Charity cheque.

McMillan Muller said: “It was great spending time with the helpers and kids. Despite the challenges they face, they are full of good spirit. It’s great being able to give back to the community and hopefully, our donation will make a notable difference.”
