An Update on our Drive to support development of our hallowed Goldstones

Foundation in progress at Goldstones – The project is well underway!

Thank you to everyone who has already contributed generously toward this exciting initiative to extend our change rooms and first aid room down on College’s home ground, Goldstones.

A key part of our campaign has been to reach out to past 1st cricket and rugby teams to collectively donate towards having a chosen locker in the change room. Please note however that all individuals/teams are encouraged to participate.

We are excited to share that four teams have already secured lockers (well done to the 1978 1st XV Rugby, 1988 1st XV Rugby, 2002 1st XV Rugby and 2003 1st XV Rugby teams), with more teams well on their way.

We also have a few individual donors whose names go on the change room wall.

Our aim is to complete the project before the end of this year’s rugby season; however, this year the Maritzburg College Old Boys Association (MCOBA) celebrates 125 years and it would be fantastic if we could reach our target for our Reunion weekend in May!

As already communicated, there are a number different ways you can contribute to this initiative:

  • R1000 donation to get your name on the red list board inside the change room
  • R5000 donation to get your name on the black list board inside the change room
  • R10 000 or more donation to get your name on the white list board inside the change room
  • R20 000 team donation (minimum) to secure a locker in your team’s name

Some locker numbers do hold special meanings for certain teams, and if there is a clash with the preferred locker number, we will gladly “share” the locker or work with the teams concerned to reach an amicable solution on the best way forward.

Gentlemen, this a once off opportunity to have your name on Goldstones for the next 160 years.
