Get your swim hats, bikes and trainers at the ready to make a difference - the Spirit of Belron Challenge will take place on Saturday 23 September at Dorney Lake.

Once again, we’ll be coming together to swim, cycle and run to really make a difference to Afrika Tikkun and celebrate the Spirit of Belron. Registration for this year’s event will open in the Spring and more information about events on the day will be available soon.

Keep up to date on social with our new hashtag: #SpiritofBelron. We’d love to hear how you’re making a difference throughout the year with fundraising, volunteering and other Spirit of Belron initiatives on our social channels.

Just in case you missed it - here’s our highlights video from our 15th anniversary Spirit of Belron Challenge last year.

Making a difference

Last year we were joined by Afrika Tikkun beneficiaries Faith, Asemahle, Benefactor and Khanya, who took part in the sporting events. On their visit to the UK, they spent some time in Belron International, Autoglass® in the UK and other companies, with professionals who work in the area of their career aspirations. We recently caught up with them to see how they've been getting on since their trip to the UK. Click here to watch their video.

“Since the trip to the UK, everything has been going very well. Things at school are tough because I’m taking my final year exams and all the lessons I learnt in the UK have really helped. I am now head boy at my school, a prefect and have a number of awards for academic excellence. I am looking forward to being able to go to university and study to fulfill my dreams. Belron has helped me believe in myself. Thank you.” Benefactor

“As soon as I came back from the UK, I applied for the Zurich Learnership. Just a few days later, they called me for an interview and assessment and then I got a call to say that I had been successful! I was very excited. The trip to the UK really helped me. I learnt how to conduct myself at interview, how to talk to different people, and I feel more confident. I’ve only just started my internship but I feel it is going to be the start of something great.” Faith
