FELLOW MASTERS HOCKEY PLAYERS

We are thrilled to announce our selection of a charity organization for the SA Masters Hockey IPT 2016 fundraising initiative : GREENSLEEVES CHILDREN TRUST

Greensleeves Place of Safety was founded to provide for the care and nurture of abandoned, abused or orphaned children. It is so much more to the many many children whom have made this place their home.

Greensleeves’ existence relies on founders, Di and Ian Lehy’s own resources and any donations they receive from private individuals and companies. This place of safety was founded some 18yrs ago. The Government support application is in process however this takes some time and the facility’s resource requirements are never-ending with priorities including:
– Reliable transport for the some 30 children and staff (the Lehy’s borrowed from their bond to make this happen)
– Monthly salaries and wages of teachers and staff
– Non-permanent structures implemented as safe houses / classrooms
– Maintenance / upkeep of the facilities (non-existent due to basic priorities needing to be fulfilled with any funding that comes in)

An income of a mere R17 000 per month from committed family and friends is not adequate to dent the current realistic cost of R70 000 per month in “consumables” to run the organization. Lump sum donations are welcomed and serve to fund the accrued deficits.

PROCESS / FUNDRAISING

We would like to challenge each of the 65 odd TEAMS to raise cash donations – and each team makes a financial pledge by way of a once off total donation to GREENSLEEVES (there is no minimum and no maximum amount – it is up to the resp. team’s fundraising efforts)

We encourage each player to visit our Border Masters website and learn more about GREENSLEEVES and take some time to peruse the gallery of photos / watch the video / visit their website
