I am delighted to invite you to join us for our main fundraiser ahead of the tour; an evening with Johan Ackerman and Thinus Delport. The event is shaping up to be an excellent evening for any rugby fanatic as well as anyone with links to the school. The South African themed evening will be held in the main school hall on Friday 30th November, 7pm until midnight.
Following a number of successful sports tours to Canada, South Africa and Barbados, we are once again taking a senior rugby side to South Africa next summer (July 2019). Each tour offers a unique opportunity for our students to develop and challenge their rugby, alongside experiencing a different country and culture. As with all of the tours, we need to raise money to cover the costs of kit, excursions and other activities while we are in South Africa.
Johan and Thinus will be sharing their tales and memories of South African rugby from their school boy days to becoming a Springbok and how things have changed for them since being based in Gloucestershire. There will also be a complimentary South African Braai (BBQ), a fully licensed bar, live music from Tux Fizz and a silent auction. We are hoping the event will become an opportunity for Old Cryptians and previous Crypt School tours to get together as a reunion as well as current parents and supporters of the school to be part of what promises to be a great night.
We have teamed up with Aitch and Aitch Bee who are a corporate events management company to help publicise and manage ticket sales. Tickets are £20 per adult and can be purchased through their website by clicking here. Tickets can also be purchased from the school reception by completing and returning the slip below.
We hope you are able to join us for what we are sure will be an excellent social occasion, alongside raising money for the forthcoming tour. If you have any questions or queries about the event or any aspect of the tour please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.
Mr Ashley Bawden
