FleetWatch is always happy to highlights efforts by companies in the trucking industry to support initiatives that go beyond their direct areas of operations so as to improve the lives of others for it shows the true heart of truckers.
The latest example we have come across is where Barloworld Logistics, a leading supply chain solutions business, is sponsoring the Alexandra Cricket Club (ACC) with the aim of developing and empowering the surrounding community. This is in line with the company’s efforts to uplift the environment and communities in which it operates.
Alexandra Cricket Club has the vision of producing cricket players, officials, coaches and competent cricket administrators – males and females – that will represent the Gauteng province and our national teams in all age groups and administrative positions.
This vision has a view to them becoming responsible, moral and career oriented citizens of Alexandra Township and South Africa at large. Barloworld Logistics is assisting ACC in achieving its vision by donating cricket kit and assisting them with future endeavours.
The kit was handed over at a recent cricket match between Barloworld Logistics and Alexandra Cricket Club to commemorate the partnership. The concept behind the match was to have a fun filled competitive match of 10 overs per side to mark and celebrate the kit donation initiative.
Barloworld Logistics intends on continuing to support this great initiative as and when the need arises.
