– SFP’s Community Development Department hosted the Berg Sport Tournament recently in the Sweetwaters Community, close to Merensky’s Cedara plantation in the Pietermaritzburg area. Local soccer and netball teams in the Under 17 age-group competed for top honours.
Competition was steep and local schools turned out in their numbers to cheer their teams on. The Spirit Soccer team was the ultimate soccer victor on the day, followed closely by the Vubela team in second place and Young Stars in third place. The Fighters netball team remained unbeaten during the tournament, placing first, with the Sisonke team coming second.
Headman Ngcoya – who represented local Chief Inkosi Zondi at the prize-giving – thanked Merensky for investing in sport and recreation for the youth. Merensky was able to put its value of inclusivity into action by supporting local youth and culture, and doing good for its neighbours.
