The Paddocks Shopping Centre raises funds for The Salesian Institute

PUBLISHED: February 3, 2005

Investec, proud sponsors of both the Stormers and Western Province rugby teams, recently gave supporters the opportunity to come and meet some of their Stormers heroes at an autograph signing session at The Paddocks Shopping Centre in Milnerton, Cape Town.

On hand to meet their fans and sign autographs was Investec Stormers captain Neil De Kock, as well as team mates Bolla Conradie, Chris Rossouw and Hendrik Gerber.

Fans were also given the chance to enter a raffle to win an Investec Stormers jersey signed by the whole team. R2, 000 was raised from the raffle, which The Paddocks Shopping Centre donated to The Salesian Institute, the official Stormers charity.

Neil de Kock was present to hand over the cheque on behalf of The Paddocks Shopping Centre to The Salesian Institute. “The work that the Salesian Institute does for the street children of Cape Town is amazing, and The Paddocks Shopping Centre and the Stormers players are thrilled to be able to assist them in their efforts.”
