The Western Cape Provincial Sport Confederation (WCPSC), has announced that Thorburn Specialised Services will be their preferred event solutions partner for all forthcoming amateur sporting events. WCPSC is a member of the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and administers, promotes and monitors all amateur sport federations and districts within the Western Cape.
“I am delighted and honoured to reinforce this latest cooperation between Thorburn and the WCPSC, representing our newly launched division - Specialised Services,” says Stephan Botha, Managing Director at Thorburn Security Solutions. “The enhanced strategic cooperation between Thorburn Specialised Services and the WCPSC will not only benefit both companies, but will also assist in uplifting local communities through sport.”
Thorburn recently launched Specialised Services as a separate division to provide a suite of bespoke solutions for higher-risk situations that does not fall into the “business-as-usual” category.
“Our partnership agreement with the WCPSC now gives us the opportunity to showcase our end-to-end events and risk management solutions to the greater public,” says Botha.
According to the WCPSC President, JP Naude, Thorburn has proved themselves to the confederation over a number of years providing consistent good service and successfully securing key events for the province, such as the Africa Judo Championships, T20 Cricket Tournaments, UWKF Continental Africa Karate Championships and many more.
“We are pleased to put Thorburn Specialised Services forward as our event solutions partner of choice for all our provincial amateur sporting events in the Western Cape and trust that this partnership will grow from strength to strength.”
Jonathan Boucher, Director of Thorburn Specialised Services, is of the opinion that the partnership and preferred service provider status provides the business with a significant growth opportunity in the events market. “We are now able to showcase the full spectrum of our events - and risk management solutions, including security, cleaning, catering, medical, health and safety, fire risk management, and more.”
Thorburn has a longstanding history in supporting and developing communities through sport in South Africa, particularly through youth initiatives. “I am pleased that our partnership agreement with the WCPSC and our increased involvement in the amateur sports arena will help further our shared cause. We firmly believe that sport provides an important vehicle for the development of leadership, discipline and healthy life habits which is to the benefit of not only the local communities, but all of society,” says Boucher.
