Calling ALL businesses – big and small – to support the Valley Pre-Primary Sandcastle Competition and invest in education!

Why join our family of Sponsors?

For great advertising

  • Engage thousands of people on the beach with exciting brand activations
  • Most visitors are LSM 8-10 families with kids from Hout Bay, the Atlantic Seaboard and the Southern Suburbs
  • Link your brand with feel-good, heart-warming community initiatives 
    – wear your heart on your sleeve.
  • Valuable media coverage from SABC Expressoshow and community newspapers like The Sentinel
  • A great team-building opportunity for your management and staff

For the children

100% of funds go to education empowerment projects in Hout Bay. These are led by Valley Pre-Primary School’s Sonwabile Fund, which enables 10 children from disadvantaged backgrounds to join the school every year as well as benefit from Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and Language Enrichment. The Sonwabile Fund also helps these children with financial support to attend Valley’s unforgettable school outings and functions.

​Sponsorship Options

Own the Beach as a Title Sponsor
R40 – R60 000

Dress the Chapman’s Peak side of the beach in your branding from 8am to 3pm – flags and banners; gazebos, promoters in branded kit handing out samples; umbrellas for competing teams; giant beach balls delighting the crowds … think outside of the box and go big.

Your branding on all marketing collateral including ads in the Hout Bay Sentinel and posters, banners and flyers around town. It will also be on the D6 School Communicator app which engages 150 Valley School families.
(There may be more/wider media exposure, we’ll work together to do all that we can)

R10,000 upward for prime position branding

Corporate competing team
From R1 500 per team

Enter a proudly branded castle-building team with six of your volunteering employees. Be part of the action, competing for the Floating Trophy and a prize in the Corporate Category. Brand your site with banners and bunting and make a splash. Feel free to add a second team of six!

Sonwabile team sponsorship (a perfect CSI opportunity)
From R2 000 per team 

Put your support behind a team or teams of underprivileged children from some of Hout Bay’s best run NPOs, NGOs and less privileged schools. These teams compete in the Sonwabile Category and will love being able to take part proudly wearing your branded Gear. You can also brand the site that your teams are building on with flags, bunting, umbrellas, etc.

Donate, donate, donate

We welcome donations of inventive prizes, food, drinks or other relevant products to add to the magic on the beach. We need lots of prizes suitable for adults, families and children of all ages for different categories ranging from vouchers for meals, trips, services, goods or accommodation, to items like toiletries, toys, DVDs, books, games  – chat to us and we can brainstorm!

Thank you again to the many local Hout Bay & Cape Town businesses who have previously also supported the
SandCastle Competition over the past 24 years!
We could not do this without you!
