COME TOGETHER TO HELP OUR FAMILY

05 MAY 2020

Dear Members

COME TOGETHER TO HELP OUR FAMILY

Once again, the thought of writing about coronavirus instead of news relating to our club is not just surreal – it’s rather devastating. Right now, we have to just ensure we’re there for each other and able to offer a supporting hand wherever we can.

This brings me to the latest effort from our Executive Committee as we launch an internal campaign to assist those of our members who are in need during this pandemic. There are many families within our club who simply cannot afford to put a meal on the table right now, so here’s our chance to help them. A small contribution from you, your family or your friends will go a long way to help us put together some food parcels. All our parcels will be sanitized and distributed safely; and all our food items will be purchased from a single source.

Members who wish to donate products instead of cash may do so by contacting the club secretary, Tracey Lewis, either via email (exco@rygersdal.co.za) or phone 072 014 6429 – you may also speak to Tracey to arrange collection.

Contributing to society outside the two-day-a-week football training is an important pillar of the Rygersdal Football Club and speaks volumes to our vision of a family culture within the club.

While it is important we do not take away from the message above, it is just as important to remind everyone of the seriousness of coronavirus and the situation we’re facing. I trust our members are staying at home wherever possible and taking all the necessary precautions when venturing out.

The latest coronavirus statistics, as issued by the Health Department, shows really sad news where as of 04 May 2020, 138 people had passed away from the effects of Covid19. This is not something to take lightly, we have to take it seriously and ensure we do all we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones.

For those who are back at work; please stay safe and look after yourselves.

Don’t forget it is now mandatory to wear your masks whenever you’re out in public and if you don’t need to go out – stay home.
