Rugby Sponsorship – Welkom-Gimnasium

Welkom Gymnasium players

The Hollywood Foundation was proud to assist five players at Welkom-Gimnasium, a school that was established in 1953. The school is based in Welkom, Free State, and it has actively been involved in uplifting its players through rugby. There are 210 players, who form part of the junior and senior teams. Nurturing home-grown talent is the aim of the game for Welkom-Gimnasium, and some players have been contracted by the Bulls and Western Province junior structures through the years.

Sports development continues to be a major pillar for the Hollywood Foundation, as the Team are aware that many people across South Africa rely on sport to overcome various social challenges that are prevalent in communities. On 4 July 2022, the Hollywood Foundation was happy to fund the fees required for five rugby players at the school, who were selected to take part in the Craven Week tournament. The tournament, which took place from 3 – 9 July this year in Cape Town, is an annual rugby union tournament that is organised for schoolboys across the country. Roean Bezuidenhout, the Head of Sport at Welkom-Gimnasium, was ecstatic to hear that some of the rugby players will be receiving funding this year to compete in the tournament. He added that this contribution will allow the players to receive exposure and opportunities to study further.
