GRAB YOUR BUCKETS AND SPADES FOR A GOOD CAUSE, Hout Bay

It’s time for some family fun in the sun at Hout Bay’s much loved Sandcastle Competition taking place on Saturday April 13 on Hout Bay beach, Cape Town.

The event attracts hundreds of children, families, schools and corporate teams, who compete to build the most impressive sandcastle possible, in aid of education funds.

Registration takes place on the beach at 8.30am and the competition kicks off at 9.30am andruns until 1pm. Food and drink stalls as well as music, pony rides and a fun park will ensure it’s a full day of family entertainment.

Funds raised will go to the Valley Pre-Primary School. Through their Sonwabile Fund support is provided for the children attending their school from disadvantaged backgrounds to receive educational therapies such as Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Language Enrichment as required as well as school outings and stationery.

Valley has also partnered with the Bright Start organization through which 10 bursaries are provided for underprivileged children to attend the school and with the Hangberg Educational Trust to raise funds for Hout Bay Educare.

Companies are invited to enter corporate teams of six or to sponsor teams of underprivileged children from Hout Bay who form the Sonwabile teams. Corporate and Sonwabile teams can be branded on the day.

Entry fees are R30 an adult and R15 a child. Corporate teams and sponsored Sonwabile teams pay R700. School teams competing in the interschool category pay R150.

Members of the public who would like to support the event but prefer not to compete, can buy raffle tickets, support the food and drink stalls and cheer the contestants on.

The date is chosen to coincide with low tide so there will be loads of space for builders and spectators. Fantastic prizes are awarded to winners in each category as selected by celebrity judges.
