First Cape scores community points

14 November, 2008

First Cape,

the official wine of the

British & Irish Lions, is refurbishing the sports facilities at a South African school.

A new rugby pitch will be built and the changing rooms refurbished at Simondium School, which is located near

First Cape's winery in Paarl.

The

complex will be officially opened by

the Lions rugby team in June.

First Cape director Greg Wilkins said: "We committed ourselves to creating a post-Lions footprint in the

community when we became proud

sponsors."
