PLAYERS INSPIRE COMMUNITY TO CLEAN UP COLESBERG

Grand Slam golfer Gary Player and wife Vivienne once again inspired the community of Colesberg to clean up their town as part of a recycling initiative inspired by the annual Gary Player Invitational tournament.

The project was made possible through the partnership between the South African leg of the global Gary Player Invitational (GPI) series and Wildlands, which is a beneficiary of this annual charity golf tournament played at Sun City.Screen Shot 2017-06-01 at 12.51.43

“Our partnership with the Gary Player Invitational, Coca-Cola and PETCO is transforming the lives of thousands of community members around the country,” said Wildlands’ CEO Dr Andrew Venter.

“Through their support we’re progressively expanding our network of Waste-preneurs, improving lives whilst cleaning and greening the communities they live in. Our Colesberg expansion is driven explicitly by Gary and Vivienne Player who believe in this community. Their personal commitment and dedication is truly inspirational.”

The Players have actively driven this project in their community. “It’s an absolute thrill for me that The Player Foundation with Coca-Cola supports Wildlands who makes it their mission to uplift rural communities through job creation while preserving the natural environments that these communities operate in, such as here in Colesberg,” said Gary Player.

Over R1.7 million of the funds donated by The Player Foundation to Wildlands in 2016 through the Gary Player Invitational was allocated to recycling staffing and logistic costs in both Colesberg and eThekwini.

“Our commitment to Wildlands is stronger than ever,” said Player. “It is so touching to see the people involved in the project and the amount of work being done. So much by so few. I’m hoping this will be a trend that will spread throughout South Africa to help keep our beautiful country try clean.”
