Brian Baloyi assists desperate families

Brian Baloyi has teamed up with Hollywoodbets to help families in need in Alexandra and Thembisa.

The former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, who enjoyed trophy-laden spells at Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, joined up with ex-Orlando Pirates striker Jerry Sikhosana to distribute food parcels and face-masks during the COVID-19 lockdown.

In conjunction with the Brian Baloyi foundation, which was founded in 2018, 200 families were helped during this time of crisis.

“I am very grateful that I got to give back to my community and thank you to Hollywoodbets as this would not have been possible without their help,” Baloyi said. “This has been a great starting point for the Brian Baloyi Family Foundation and we look forward to what the future holds.”

Hollywoodbets, who employ Baloyi and Sikhosana as ambassadors, purchased the masks from a group of local women in Alexandra. The company says it is their duty as a proudly South African company to help the country’s most affected communities.

“During this time, most South Africans are going through a difficult period and this is why Brian and Jerry wanted to do something to help,” Hollywoodbets Soccer Brand Manager Wayde Dorkin said.

“It is important that we share our goodwill with those in dire need. We were also honoured to support our brand ambassadors. With the help of community leaders, we were able to identify 200 families whom they assisted and who got to enjoy magical memories with their soccer heroes during the handovers.”
