About the awards

About the Jack Cheetham and Letsema Awards

The Jack Cheetham Award provides financial support for development projects that have a focus on sport and assist able-bodied athletes.  The Letsema Award also provides financial assistance to development projects but to differently-abled sports and athletes.

Murray & Roberts is proud of its support for sports development projects and more importantly, the positive impact and difference the finalists and winners have had on their beneficiaries and extended communities over the 38 year history of the awards.

The awards are presented in partnership with the South African Sports Confederation and Sports Committee (SASCOC).  SASCOC is South Africa’s national multi-code sporting body responsible for preparation, presentation and performance of teams to events including the Olympic Games, Paralympic Games and the Commonwealth Games.  SASCOC provides the awards a reach into its affiliated federations.

We encourage development projects with a sporting focus to submit an application.  For more information on the application process contact Brenda Mantje at Murray & Roberts on or or Jessica Chonga at SASCOC on
