Cape Town - As another busy year winds down and we
approach the season of giving, the Chris Burger Petro Jackson Players Fund has encouraged their supporters to consider
donating to the Fund which assists those whose lives have
been dramatically changed on the rugby field.
The Players’ Fund has been the pillar of strength and support that
seriously injured rugby players have turned to for 36 years. Over time
it has been noted that far too often the players and their families are
put under severe financial pressure due to the injuries
and ongoing health needs. This often results in luxuries associated with
the festive season just not on the priority list.
The Players’ Fund would like to appeal to all rugby supporters and
all those who have run out onto the rugby field to open their hearts and
by donating any amount help cover the costs of a small gift
for every Players’ Fund recipient (105 individuals currently in SA).
Whether it is R100 as an individual or a little more from a company,
Rugby’s Caring Hands would like to appeal to those who also believe that
no rugby player should ever be left on the side lines, especially
during the festive season.

All donations will qualify for a Section 18A certificate.
