We continued our investment in youth development through sport by renewing our sponsorship of the Sharks Academy in 2016. A cheque of 1 million rand was presented to the Sharks Academy on 27 August 2016 during the Sharks vs Blue Bulls Currie Cup match at the Growthpoint Kings Park Rugby Stadium.
We remain the largest sponsor of the Sharks Academy as our partnership now enters its fifth year. 50 rugby and soccer bursaries which also included a tertiary education were awarded to talented youth from previously disadvantaged communities since 2012.
“Being a Durban based company for the past 65 years we are huge supporters of the Sharks and are proud to be associated with the Sharks Academy to uplift the next generation South African sports icons.” says Red Shuttleworth, CEO, G.U.D. Holdings.
