Pedalling for Pebbles for kids
David Belliars (Cape Town Cycle Tour Race Director), Laurent Amar (French Consul General) and Antoine Leccia (Advini President).

The L’Avenir Wine Estate Cape Town Cycle Tour team enhanced the lives of children in Stellenbosch through the Pedalling for Pebbles initiative.

Supported by the French Embassy, the team included the French Consul General in Cape Town, Laurent Amar, and raised funds for education, health and sports development of children in the Stellenbosch Winelands, through Pebbles Project.

L’Avenir started collaborating with Pebbles Project in 2004 and provides day care and after school facilities for all the children on the farm, as well as children from neighbouring properties. Not only has this allowed the children to perform well at school, but it provides their parents with peace of mind, knowing that their children are well looked after in an environment conducive to learning.

Through the L’Avenir Sports Development Initiative, L’Avenir uses sport and professional coaching to enhance the development of the children at L’Avenir’s Pebbles Afterschool Care Centre. Fundraising for Pebbles through the Cape Town Cycle Tour was therefore a natural progression of the project’s focus on sport.

The 2020 team consisted of supporters and ambassadors of L’Avenir. The 2020 L’Avenir Pedalling for Pebbles team was: Antoine Leccia (Advini President), Laurent Amar (French Consul General: Cape Town), Wynand Olivier (former Springbok Rugby Player), Philip Snyman (former Blitzboks Captain), Haldane Luscombe (former Welsh Rugby Player), Michael Collins (South African Ironman), Pieter van Rooyen (injury rehabilitation specialist and strength and conditioning coach at Maties Rugby) and Ivan Zimmermann (South African actor and adventurer).

L’Avenir aimed to raise at least R1 000 per kilometre that the team cycled.

The Pebbles Project enriches the lives of children and families in the Cape Winelands farming communities in the Western Cape. Since their inception in 2004, Pebbles Projects has impacted the lives of children and their families by providing support and intervention in five key areas, education, health, nutrition, community and protection.

The L’Avenir Sports Development Project is pioneering sports development in the Cape Winelands through professional coaching. Dedicated to creating fair play on and off the pitch, the project uses play to steer youth toward a better life, with better awareness, life skills and ultimately, better opportunities.
