Connect’s young high performance athletes are now being supported by The South African, who are using their global audience to join our growing list of sponsors.
The website, for South Africans living all over the world, has chosen our academy for their festive fundraiser between now and January.
Athlete sponsorship is their aim, as part of our dedicated scheme, and they have set an initial R30 000 target to sponsor two of our athletes for the whole of 2018.
Six Connect athletes sponsored already
The South African’s involvement comes hot on the heels of the Daily Maverick’s decision to sponsor our SACS-bound junior athlete Aya Machuli.
Akha Mjawule, who will start at the prestigious Cape Town school with Aya in January, also recently received personal sponsorship of his own from a private donor.
They join Lukhanyo Vokozela, Lamla Nunu and Lutho Dyalvane on our list of supported athletes – with the trio sponsored by Timbercity’s Woodstock branch in Cape Town.
Ilitha ‘Mister’ Ntinini, who became one of Connect’s first national rugby champions alongside Akha with the Western Province Under 13 7s team this year, is also sponsored by leading African law firm Bowmans.
We have plenty of other athletes that would benefit from the sponsorship of you or your company.
The R15 000 annual donation can be paid in quarterly or even monthly installments if you prefer – and Connect Sports Academy has a Section 18(A) tax certificate from SARS.
So please contribute to The South African’s campaign and help them reach their target over the festive season.
Or you can contact us for further details if you or your business would like to sponsor an athlete by yourselves.
Thank you to The South African again for their support of meaningful, long-term sporting development that has the power to change lives for the better.
