Schools in need: you can help

2011-01-21 00:00

DO you know of a needy school that is run down, with not enough classrooms and inadequate sporting facilities?

Then you might just be the miracle that school needs by nominating it for the “Together with Toughees” competition.

Through its Toughees campaign, Toughees School Shoes say they will be reaching out to thousands of South African learners who need help in getting the quality school experience they deserve.

By helping them identify a needy school, one person stands a chance to win R10 000, while the winning school they nominate, will be awarded a R300 000 facelift.

Entries to the competition can be sent either online by visiting or by mail on the address: PostNet Suite 185, Private Bag X04, Dalbridge, 4014 with the heading “Together with Toughees”. Entry forms can also be collected from any Bata store in the country.

Entrants are welcome to write motivational letters, send pictures or short videos which can assist in the short listing process.

The competition closes on February 28. Winners will be announced in April.
