The AP foundation would like to thanks our principle sponsor Momentum, as well as our partners Supersport, Makro {PE}, Bayfm, SAPS, Tempest Car Hire, Sedgars Sports, EPCB and all our volunteers.

The foundation adopted another school in the Gelvandale community and donated cricket equipment to St. Thomas High School, as well as a individual sponsorship to Eliah Baarties who's passion for cricket is undeniable, however his parents can't afford cricket equipment.

“We are very grateful for the generous sponsor from Momentum who enabled us to host a successful event, and contribute to the education of at least 24 players”, said Rob Hodson, the foundation Chairman.

“it was an exceptionally successful event, good weather, good cricket, good food, community support and smiles on young peoples faces... We are truly delivering what we set out to do, and that is to make a difference in the lives of South Africans”, said the founder of the foundation, Alviro Petersen.
