Major Boost for The Sports Truston December 5, 2011
Each year, “Africa’s Major” also makes a major contribution to sports development in South Africa. One of the vehicles for this is The Sports Trust Golf Challenge, which is played on the Monday following the Nedbank Golf Challenge.
The participating amateur golfers, including leading businessmen and celebrities, play the Gary Player Country Club exactly as it was set up for the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge. But the true winner is The Sports Trust. Funding for The Sports Trust is derived largely from this golf day, which raises over R1-million each year for the Trust.
Sun International, in partnership with Nedbank, is one of the founding trustees of The Sports Trust, which since its inception has sponsored over 200 sports development projects and invested over R40-million in sports development throughout South Africa.
