WP Rugby’s principle sponsor, DHL, has brought new and exciting initiatives to match day at DHL Newlands. The Castle Lawns were able to enjoy the DHL Kicking Simulator, whilst new competitions and entertainment before kickoff and at half time of all games have kept fans enthralled whilst our boys get ready to hit the field.
 

DHL - the world’s largest logistics company – knows however that it is just as important to support the communities of the Western Cape as it is to keep fans happy. That is why this season DHL introduced the DHL Schools initiative. Each week the sponsor hosts children from schools in disadvantaged areas at DHL Newlands.
 
At the recent game against the Bulls, DHL hosted children from Boys and Girls Town Each kid not only were treated to Spur Burgers, Cool drinks and Stormers merchandise courtesy of DHL, but they of course got to watch the DHL Stormers' clash with the Crusaders at DHL Newlands.

20 kids from Boys and Girls Town Kenilworth and Macassar joined to experience their first live rugby match. It was certainly the clash of the Titans and the kids were all proud DHL Stormers supporters.

Girls and Boys Town Cape Family Homes are residential childrens’ homes that try to re-create a family-style environment for youth who have been orphaned, abandoned, neglected or abused.
