Sponserships & Community Projects
Sharon Fruit can say with great pleasure that we have hosted (in the past) the Sharon-Fruit Swellendam Half Marathon, unfortunately the Marathon does not exsist anymore. To date, Sharon-Fruit is still sponsoring Buffeljagsrivier Primary School for various academic and sporting activities.
We are proud to say, that we have sponsored and hosted the 2014 SANTAM Open Tug of War Championships, previously known as the SWD Tug of War Championships. The presticious event was a huge success. The day was represented by schools from Swellendam, Buffeljagsrivier and Suurbraak. The Thursday and Friday morning it was a buzz of excitement as the children was weighed in before the big event started on Saturday. The competition was extremely close and determination and fighting spirit was the key to success.
Championship results held on Saturday, March 8, 2014 can be seen on the right.
On a more serious subject. In the beginning of the year the rain seem never to stop and floods and rampage hit the little place, called Buffeljagsrivier and its community. Lot of people lost their homes and was without food and shelter. Arisa Packhouse decided to give a helping hand, by providing blankets to those in need and soup and bread for the hungry.
Just again a reminder that no one is above the laws of nature. I hope that this will urge us to help those in need and give a helping hand when needed, not just people but animals as well.
