When Cheltenham College set off on their
rugby tour to South Africa in August 2014, they had one very special stop to
make that had nothing to do with rugby - to the Dalukhanyo Pre-School in Langa
Township. Earlier in the year the boys involved in the tour along with Tom
Richardson, Head of Rugby, had decided that they wanted to raise funds for the
Langa Township Pre-School Trust (LTPT) in Cape Town.
During the year the boys held various
fund-raising events, culminating in a Dinner Dance at College in May where the
boys worked as waiters for the evening and organised a very successful auction.
When the boys visited the Township in
August they presented the LTPT with a cheque for £4,000 – money that will be
used to support building development at Dalukhanyo Pre-School after a recent
fire destroyed one of the school buildings.
