Announced at the naming rights launch of PPC Newlands in October 2015, PPC Ltd's partnership with JP Duminy and his non-profit organisation the JP21 Project will see a number of concrete cricket pitches and practice nets built in under-resourced primary schools in the Cape, with a view to some of these children stepping up to play for South Africa at PPC Newlands in the future.
The announcement of the three schools that will benefit from this partnership: Parkhurst Primary, Eisleben Road Primary and Duneside Primary, was made on 18 February. The schools were carefully selected from a number of applicants in the greater Mitchell's Plain and Strandfontein areas where the JP21 Project is active, each having submitted compelling motivations as to why they should be recipients of their own new pitch.
Clint Wicomb, PPC General Manager Sales & Marketing Coastal Region, congratulated each of the school principals present, reassuring learners that the pitches would be built in the shortest possible time so that they can start making full use of facilities and developing and perfecting their skills.
Local ward councillor and special guest at the event Eddie Andrews noted that it was a privilege to be part of the project.
