All the participating soccer teams met at Build It Hermanus, from where they walked to the Mt Pleasant Sports Ground to show unity. Build It also handed out vuvuzelas for the children to support their teams.

On Saturday 27 October, Build It Hermanus held its third annual Overstrand Build It Soccer Tournament at the Mt Pleasant Sports Ground. This tournament is held annually all over South Africa and this year in Hermanus over 100 players took part from local schools and teams, including Waldorf School, Lukhanyo Primary, Zwelihle Primary, Generation Schools Hermanus and Just Care Aftercare.

Both boys’ and girls’ teams participated and many prizes and trophies were up for grabs. The teams met at Build It Hermanus before walking together to the sports ground to show their solidarity. An acapella group from Lukhanyo Primary opened the festivities with some songs and lunch was provided for the children. The winning teams were Lukhanyo Primary for the boys and Zwelihle Primary for the girls. The Zwelihle Primary girls also won the R5 000 prize for the best spirit. The funds will be used at Build It Hermanus to buy building materials for their school.
