Due to an unfortunate and serious injury suffered by Shebeen Boy Ryan ‘Gary’ Reaper in a League fixture against False Bay 5th XV on Friday 22 May, Villager FC is rallying behind the team in support of Ryan as well as the Chris Burger Petro Jackson Player fund who assist injured Rugby players.
After Villager FC were approached by Shebeen Boys Chairman, Richard Stemmet, to help further the fundraising efforts of his team for the Players Fund in their #AllinForG Campaign, the Club has decided on a course of action that we believe is appropriate in it’s support of Ryan, or as his friends know him, Gary, and the Chris Burger Petro Jackson Players Fund.
As part of the fundraising efforts for the Players Fund the Shebeen Boys are selling #AllinForG Campaign t-shirts which we are hoping for all Villager FC players to wear as part of their warm-up preparations during the next two fixtures. Each t-shirt costs R150, with ALL proceeds going to the Players Fund.
Members can either purchase one for themselves which they will need to be able to fetch from the club upon delivery, or alternatively if members want to help they may sponsor a t-shirt/s for a player. The t-shirts can be purchased on our online shop and is payable by direct EFT only. Please add the number of t-shirts you wish to purchase or sponsor and order online, you will receive a purchase order via email immediately.Your order will only be processed once payment has been received.
Villager FC are also looking to hold a special Club Night next Thursday evening where a representative of the Players Fund will hopefully be speaking. The Shebeen Boys will also be receiving their jerseys from the Villager 1st XV players and a video montage from various professional sportsmen and teams will be played showing their support for Gary and the #AllinForG Campaign. Please diarize Thursday 11 June as we would love to have as many Villager members present to be at the evening in support of Gary and the campaign. More information about this event will follow soon.
We really encourage our members to get behind this cause in solidarity with Ryan and the Players Fund. We need all the help we can to share this post, sell the t-shirts and then come to the Club on Thursday 11 June in support of the #AllinForG Campaign. If anyone would like to help in other ways please contact firstname.lastname@example.org who is actively working with the Shebeen Boys on spreading the word of their campaign.
On behalf of Villager FC we wish Ryan a speedy recovery and are doing everything we can in support of him, his family and friends during this time.
