Harlequins Rugby Receives Support

Soccer may be front of mind right now, but that doesn’t mean South
Africa’s other favourite sport is off the radar. With the recent
all-South African Super 14 final and the upcoming SA vs Wales test this
Saturday, professional world-class rugby remains as popular and
exciting as ever.

Harlequins Rugby Fund-raising EventAnd although our
local squads are ranked among the very best in the
world at present, it all starts at the grass-roots stage. Certainly the
ongoing success of our regional and national teams is determined by the
feeder programmes that begin at club and provincial levels.

Motor Company of Southern Africa
(FMCSA) is involved
in local rugby as an associate sponsor to SA Rugby and the Springboks,
and also sponsors rugby development by supplying 34 Ford Bantams to
development officers throughout South Africa.

And now, Ford has taken its participation to community level by making
a donation to the Port Elizabeth Harlequins Rugby Football Club. A
cheque was handed to club president Willie Blunden by Paul Brooks from
the Ford Struandale Engine Plant at a fund-raising evening held in Port
Elizabeth on 3 June.

The lively event was attended by some of the leading lights of SA
rugby, including none other than South African Rugby Union president
Oregan Hoskins and Cheeky Watson (president of Eastern Province Rugby
Union), as well as head Stormers and Western Province coach Alistair
Coetzee, a former Harlequins player.

“Ford has aligned itself with SA rugby, as it’s not only one of this
country’s favourite pastimes, but serves as an inspiration for many,
and instils an overwhelming sense of national pride and unity,”
explains Jacques Brent, FMCSA vice president of marketing, sales and
service. “This ties in perfectly with the One Ford philosophy that
enables our company to work together towards a more exciting and
prosperous future for Ford and its employees.

“The opportunity presented by the Port Elizabeth Harlequins fund-raiser
represents the ideal occasion to entrench Ford’s support for rugby
development, and to include more grass-roots organisations in our
sponsorship programme,” Brent states.

“This is vital in strengthening the feeder programmes into provincial
and national rugby teams, thereby ensuring that South Africa remains
one of the top teams in international rugby for many years to come.”

It also reaffirms Ford’s commitment to supporting the local communities
in which it operates, and complements the wide range of corporate
social investment programmes undertaken by the Ford
Struandale Engine
throughout the Nelson Mandela Bay region.
