On Saturday, 19 November, we turned the V & A Waterfront amphitheatre into a quiz show battleground for the #Fuel2Grow Battle of Wits.
Teams of schoolchildren from SACS Junior School, The Grove Primary School, Rustenburg Girls’ Junior School and Ikamva Labantu programmes went head-to-head against celebrity adult teams in a nail-biting and hilarious battle of wits.
Hosted by Katlego Maboe, the Battle of Wits was an initiative of the #Fuel2Grow campaign, which aims to reach R1.5m by the end of December.
We were joined by Danilo Acquisto, Africa Melane, Dr. Michael Mol and Zolani Mahola, who all took part in the quiz. Freshlyground, partners of the #Fuel2Grow campaign, also supported the cause, treating the crowd to an energetic performance to end off the day.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated in and supported the #Fuel2Grow Battle of Wits. We had a fantastic day, filled with smiles and laughter.
Of course, the kids came out on top and put all the adults to shame with their general knowledge!
With your help, we raised a brilliant R64,667.75 – bringing our total amount raised so far to R230,145.34!
This money will help provide holistic support to schoolchildren in Cape Town’s townships.
