We are delighted to report that Jupiter supported rugby team, Eric Louw High school’s under 15 team have won their league championship.

Jupiter South Africa have been supporting their local high school’s rugby team with new equipment and a refurbished scrum machine.

On July 13th Eric Louw played in the final league game against Warbad with a score of 26/5 in favour of the home team. The feisty encounter capped off a memorable league season for the young players.

Practice makes perfect

The Jupiter branded scrum machine allows the youngsters to hone their skills and it’s certainly working! For the first time in 16 years, the under 15’s of Eric Louw high School have won the league. The team are also ranked first in the rugby mad Limpopo province.

Jupiter supporting communities in South Africa

We continue to support South Africa Rugby Union’s Rugby Education Foundation, which includes the sponsoring of two extremely talented young players. The programme supports “exciting, predominantly black, young talent”, in its four rugby academies, by giving players a chance to study at university, or technical institution, while undertaking rugby training.

Jupiter also provided funds to ‘Adopt-a-Mission’. This a volunteer-run charity that provides food to struggling families in the Brooklyn suburb of South Africa. Our sponsorship also helps the charity host events throughout the year, including a Christmas braai for all local families; as well as distribute an annual goody bag to men and women of Brooklyn containing a Bible, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, body wash, body lotion and bar of soap.

Jupiter South Africa has a presence in all the production regions of South Africa which enables continuous supply options for grape, stone fruit, citrus, apples and pears. Having a local office and team in Paarl enables us to view and monitor fruit at the time of packing to ensure customer specifications are met.

Please see our Nancy Tweddle Foundation video on Youtube for further information on our commitment to help better communities.
