Bakwena N1N4 Toll raised R183 000 at its ninth annual charity golf day at the Centurion Country Club last week. This brings the total amount raised by Bakwena for charity over thepast nine years to R1.5 million.
Six charities were selected to benefit from this year’s event. They include Thusanang Early Learning Centre, PinkDrive, WheelWell, CANSA, Laudium Cancer Care and Mohau House.
Bakwena’s Charmaine van Wyk says the company selects beneficiaries that are aligned with its corporate social investment strategy. “We are particularly grateful to our valuable stakeholders, who helped ensure the success of the day.”
Bakwena converted its annual golf day into a charity fundraiser nine years ago. Since then, it has assisted 6 charities with the more than R1.5 million over the years. “As custodians of the N1N4 toll, we harness our relationships with government and industry stakeholders to help uplift communities along our route. The golf day is one of the many initiatives we are involved in,”says van Wyk.
