At the recent Annual General Meeting the trustees of The Alviro Petersen Foundation resolved that Robert Hodson would remain in post as the Chairman of the Foundation for another year (2015)

"Robert has overseen the successful launch of the Foundation during it’s first year in 2014 which has included at least four different projects,” said Alviro Petersen.

“Under his chairmanship the Foundation has contributed to at least 24 High School pupil’s fees, educated over 3000 individuals about drug and substance abuse, and provided sports equipment to over 500 scholars and young people.”

The foundation successfully hosted the AP Foundation Cricket Challenge, as well as the first Gala Dinner in November last year.

“Together with the other trustees (Alviro Petersen, Steve Easton, Arthur Turner and MC Dreyer) the Chairman has worked tirelessly to ensure that we get the necessary finances to fund the above projects.

“I would like to acknowledge Robert's service to the Foundation and the fantastic work he has done together with all the other trustees who made sure that the projects we hosted were successful, the founder of the Foundation, Alviro Petersen said.

Staff & Contractors:

In January 2015 the Foundation appointed Reeze Telling as the full time Coordinator in Port Elizabeth, after he successfully coordinated the AP Foundation Cricket Challenge last year.

“Reeze, is a hard working and honest individual who has the work of the Foundation at heart. He is committed not just to the Foundation, but to the beneficiaries as well, and we are delighted to have him employed full time,” said Alviro.

MP Tax Consultants remain the auditing firm for the Foundation.

One World of Sport, who work very hard to find sponsors and donors, will remain the sponsorship consultants.

Daisy Chain Events remain the event coordinators/ consultants in Gauteng, as they successfully overseen the launch of the Foundation as well as the Gala Dinner.

Projects planned for 2015:

The AP Foundation will continue to support the identified schools namely, Fontein Primary, Gelvandale High and Otto Du-Plessis High Schools.

As from January this year St. Thomas High School has been included as another of our identified schools, and the Foundation has already handed over cricket equipment and clothing to them.

In 2014 the AP Foundation started supporting Eersterust Cricket Club in Pretoria, where they provided equipment, clothing and support to the club. During the 2014/15 cricket season they performed outstandingly well and the Foundation will continue supporting the club during the 2015/16 season as well.

2015 will again see the AP Foundation Cricket Challenge, involving two primary schools, three high schools and a community team. For the first time the Foundation will host the Primary Schools soccer challenge which will feature eight to 10 schools.

Towards the end of 2015 the Foundation will launch the "Women & Children Abuse" campaign, which will coincide with the "drug awareness" programme.
