Highlands Park FC secured their first major final in 36 years in the MTN8 Cup, which was held at Orlando Stadium against SuperSport United on 5 October 2019.

SuperSport United took the lead in the first half and despite the valiant efforts by the Lions of the North, the scorecard remained unchanged at the end of the game.

We congratulate Highlands Park FC on their MTN8 runners up spot and look forward to watching the team excel in the PSL.

Siyabangena! Siyabahlaba!

Rally to Read is an initiative designed to develop the reading skills of learners in remote primary schools by supplying them with much-needed educational resources such as educator support and training; teaching and reading materials; stationery as well as sporting equipment.

Jonsson Workwear first took part in Rally to Read in 2001 and have seen how this literacy programme brings hope for a better life to thousands of young learners. In 2018 The Jonsson Foundation took on the role as the national lead sponsor and this year will play host of two of the five Rally weekends.

The KZN Berg Rally Weekend took place on the 14 September 2019. 130 people from most of our 36 funding partners united in purpose, left from our Durban office. We each visited 2 of the12 Rally primary schools in the Northern Drakensberg with the aim to inspire a love of reading and learning. Rally to Read afforded us the opportunity to handover materials, meet the learners, educators and communities to understand the realities facing many young South Africans.

The Western Cape Rally Weekend will take place on the 18 October 2019. 12 Jonssonites will join a team of 140 supporters for the second delivery of education materials to the 12 Rally primary schools in the beautiful Overberg District near Worcester.

Each Rally is a 3-year commitment and provides continuous support in each school. We are proud to be a part of this initiative and look forward to returning in 2020 and 2021.

Lions Rugby is pleased to announce the extension of Jonsson Workwear’s sponsorship for a further two years.
