Engel & Vӧlkers Paarl supports schools rugby
Engel & Völkers Paarl has been the main sponsor for Paarl Boys and Paarl Gym Primary schools for a while now. A new inspiring sponsorship started when Danny Pringle, Licence Partner of Engel & Vӧlkers Paarl attended a rugby derby in the area. Danny came to hear about Klapmuts Primary, another school in the area which has not been that fortunate with funding, resulting in frequent problems with the lack of sporting equipment.
The rugby team of Klapmuts has never had their own rugby jerseys, which is where Engel & Völkers Paarl saw an opportunity to help, with the donation of new rugby jerseys and some sporting gear. The intent was for these young boys to also feel proud about their school when they run out onto the field.
“Engel & Vӧlkers are proud to lend a helping hand wherever it is needed, and being part of the Klapmuts School is an honour for us” says Danny. “When you see the impact that you had on someone else’s life, it is rewarding – unmatched by anything else. During the hand out of the jerseys I went up to one of the players and asked him which positions he plays, to which the boy replied “Ek weet nie maar ek is nommer 14 en ons is nou professional want ons het a sponsor” Danny added.
