Every year, Belron employees, families, friends and business partners come together to raise money for our global charity, Afrika Tikkun. We're delighted to invite some of those that have benefited from the outstanding work of the charity and this year, we will be joined by Faith, Asemahle, Benefactor and Khanya who will all be taking part in the sporting activities on the day. 

They have been chosen not only for their sporting ability but also for their positive attitude towards education and commitment to help their community. Each of them has been training hard for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Khanya, Benefactor and Asemahle will compete in the Spirit of Belron Challenge event as part of Sprint Teams. Faith, who is the Ambassador of the group will take part in the 5km fun run, and will also be speaking during the Spirit of Belron Festival on the Friday evening.

As well as taking part in the Spirit of Belron Challenge event, the Afrika Tikkun group will spend time in the UK job shadowing professionals who work in the field where their career aspirations are, gaining exposure and experience.
