Soccer champs score winning goal


  • Two schools in Hammarsdale received the ultimate trophy from Mr Price Foundation Cup soccer champs
  • The soccer stars selected the schools to receive product from Mr Price Group stores worth R50,000 
  • We thank our partners for making a difference in our communities 


The winners of the Mr Price Foundation Cup 2023 have scored magnificent goals for youth, on and off the field.  


The victorious men’s and women’s teams, both from Mr Price Group’s Hammarsdale Distribution Centre, were each awarded R25,000 product vouchers to Mr Price Group stores, to donate to a school of their choice. 


They selected Umthombomuhle Primary School and Phumuphethe Creche in Hammarsdale. The DC teams selected product from Mr Price Apparel and Mr Price Home. The schools were ecstatic to receive their gifts on 15 March: an array of much-needed items ranging from school uniforms to educational toys. 


Speaking on behalf of the teams, Richard Shezi, Mr Price Group People Director, said: “We are proud to contribute towards uplifting the lives of children in our community. We hope that this gift will help make the schools a better place for the youth. I could see the excitement of those children in their eyes. The community of Hammarsdale really appreciate what we are doing as Mr Price Group.” 


Richard said the team clearly demonstrated how passionate they are about what they are doing. “The Distribution Centre came together and partnered with Mr Price Group and Mr Price Foundation, showing the value of partnership. Mr Price is known in the community as a company that cares for people,” he said. 


Karen Wells, Head of Mr Price Foundation, said the decision to award the winning teams with such a “trophy” was so that they could pay it forward and make a difference in their communities. 


“We received an overwhelming reaction from the teams when they discovered what their prizes were. Nothing in the world can replace that feeling of giving,” Karen said. 


Mr Price Foundation’s EduRise and HandPicked programmes are currently active in the Hammarsdale community.
