The return of the Mayor’s Trophy in Blantyre City continues to draw support from the corporate world as Sparc Systems on Wednesday donated K1 million towards the grassroots sports event.

Blantyre City Mayor, Noel Chalamanda, said Sparc Systems’ donation was timely as the competition is set to wind up on December 17.

“What Sparc has done is very helpful to the government and Blantyre City in uplifting the social life of our people through sports. The specific target is our youngsters who will benefit by having their skills honed in both football and netball. This gesture by Sparc will also help set up a platform where coaches and officials can scout talent.”

Chalamanda said K5 million has, so far, been collected from well-wishers.

“The support has been overwhelming. Of course, we are waiting for the well-wishers to honour the remaining pledges. But the door remains open to anyone who still wishes to support the initiative,” he said.

Sparc Systems Managing Director, Wisely Phiri, said as a corporate citizen of Blantyre, the company decided to make the donation because of the important role the tournament used to play decades ago in producing talent for the country’s clubs and national teams.

“As Sparc Systems, we are proud of our being a citizen of Blantyre. We have grown beyond the country’s borders but Blantyre remains our base. Blantyre City Mayor’s Trophy is the future of our national teams. This is the breeding ground for talent. Our donation is a noble cause because we also want to give players an opportunity to interact outside classes,” he said.

Earlier on, another of the City’s corporate citizens, Footprints, also donated K350,000 towards the same event.

The firm’s Managing Director, Mathews Ngwak, said it was part of their corporate social responsibility.

Other companies that have donated money and equipment towards the trophy include Chibuku Products, Plem Construction, Rab Processors and Dairiboard Malawi
