Boost for Back to School Learners in South Africa
Community-focussed South African betting operator, Hollywoodbets, has announced the launch of their inaugural “Back to School” campaign. This initiative will inject R2.5 million into educational development across South African schools most in need.
To assist in selecting the beneficiary schools, Hollywoodbets have partnered with Nomzamo Mbatha as well as her Lighthouse Foundation, their seven Brand Ambassadors and 85 retail branches nationwide. The items set for donation include school shoes, uniforms and stationery. R500 000 of the budget has also been allocated for the public to nominate schools that need support.
Hollywoodbets’ Group Transformation Manager, Babongile Mkhize, explained that this campaign is part of the company’s commitment to bettering the communities within which they operate. “We aim to provide learners with the basics that they need to kickstart their academic year and give them hope during this difficult time. Our communities are our family and have been hit hard by this pandemic, so we need to continue to show them our support” she said.

We regret to inform you that the Back to School campaign has officially ended on 8 February 2021. Please stay tuned for any new updates.
