The Charity Polo Day Celebrates Six Years with Sponsor
The 2015 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup is set to take place at Val de Vie Estate in South Africa on 28 November. The match follows Prince Harry’s trip to Lesotho where he is due to open the Mamohato Children’s Centre for his charity, Sentebale on 26 November. This event marks the sixth year Royal Salute has partnered with Sentebale for their annual tournament. The marriage between Royal Salute and Sentebale has so far raised a staggering £3 million for the Prince’s charity in Lesotho.
Sentebale, which in Lesotho translates as ‘Forget-me-not’, was founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso in memory of their mothers in 2006 and delivers care, support and education to children affected by extreme poverty and Lesotho’s HIV/AIDS epidemic. This will be the first time the event will be held on the African continent in Lesotho’s neighbouring country of South Africa. The Polo Times and Hine Marketing team are proud to support the charity by producing their event programmes.
The Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup will take place at Val de Vie Estate, by invitation only. The Prince will lead the Sentebale team while distinguished guests on the list for the day include South African Olympic gold medallist Ryk Neething, Call The Midwife actress Laura Main and British spoken word artist George The Poet will gather to watch the game. The line-ups for the match will include British player Malcolm Borwick, who will play alongside Prince Harry, against Royal Salute with Nacho Figueras.
A report of the day will be in the next issue of Polo Times. If you would like to know more about the charity please click here.
