Funds raised for the rhino at the 2017 St Mary’s Investec Hockey Festival.

This year, 2017, was the fifth year of our support for rhinos.  To date, at the beginning of the festival, we had contributed R180 000 to this worthy cause. Our target was reach R200 000.  We asked all attending the festival - players, coaches, entire participating schools, supporters, etc.- to please donate a “Rhi-note” (South African R10 bank note). On top of this, for every goal scored at the 2017 festival, Investec pledged to donate R200.  We are pleased to announce that R78 135.00 was raised at the 2017 St Mary’s Investec Hockey Festival.  Not only did we reach our target, we exceeded it.  Thank you to the entire hockey festival community.

All money raised will be donated to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC). HESC is home to several rhino orphaned and / or injured in the Kruger National Park and surrounding reserves in the Limpopo province. This centre is recognised as one of the leaders in the research, treatment and breeding of endangered species.
