Prince Harry & top SA polo players do their bit for charity

CAPE TOWN - Polo's top players have taken up their mallets for Aids charities in Africa.

The annual Royal Salute Polo Cup was hosted at the Val de Vie Estate in Paarl yesterday, in aid of the Lesotho-based charity Sentebale.

Prince Harry and fellow Lesotho Royal Prince Seeiso were honorary guests at the tournament.

Five years after Prince Harry suggested a fund-raising polo tournament for Aids charities, and the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup has finally reached South African shores.

After touring several countries over the years, the annual star-studded event has already raised over three million pounds.

But behind all the glitz and glamour, the real reason for yesterday's polo match is to raise awareness about the epidemic in Lesotho, where about 38 thousand children under the age of 14 live with the HI-Virus.

Off the back of the recent launch of a new care centre for the charity, Sentebale says it wants to expand its facilities across Africa.

The event was hosted a few days shy of World Aids Day next week.
