Rooibos Ltd sponsors Ashihara Karate Tournament in Citrusdal

Rooibos Ltd sponsored the Ashihara Karate Tournament – branded the Rooibos Karate Championships – held at the Vicky Zimri Thusong Community Hall in Citrusdal on Saturday, 26 August 2017. The company also sponsored transport for Clanwilliam's Enshin Karate Club to attend the event. This was the first karate championships in the Cederberg Municipality. Teams from Vredendal, Clanwilliam, Eendekuil, Citrusdal, Mitchells Plain, Grassy Park, Eersteriver and Gansbaai participated in the event.

Hoosain Narker, Director of Ashihara Karate, thanked Rooibos Ltd for the sponsorship. "Ashihara Karate prides itself on its community involvement and it was encouraging to witness the warm response of different sections of the community to our annual event. We know that the business sector plays an important part in community life and also that there are constant requests for financial support. It is for reasons such as these that our organisation appreciated Rooibos Ltd's response to our request … I would once again like to convey our sincere thanks for your contribution to the success of the first West Coast Rooibos Karate Championships and we hope to have your support again next year."
