Mandela Day on 18 July was chosen as the highly appropriate occasion to hold the inaugural Lafarge Community Trust Awards for Excellence function in the Mzimela community of northern KwaZulu-Natal. 

Lafarge, one of South Africa’s leading building materials companies, has a strong presence in the region, through its Cement Grinding Station and Readymix concrete facility at Richards Bay, together with various aggregates quarries. The company’s Country CEO Thierry Legrand commented that it was fundamental policy of Lafarge to help in the development of communities in which it operates.  “We are proud to support the Lafarge Education and Community Trusts in their work of empowering stakeholders in local schooling to plan for a better future.”
