To celebrate the life of Mandela and the last 20 years of 
freedom, as well as the release of the film on his exceptional life journey, 
Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, on 3rd January, the airline and charity are 
encouraging entries to a unique competition to win a holiday to South
 Africa by completing a short quiz (www.walktofreedomquiz.com
).

The prize, a seven-night holiday to 
South Africa, takes in three amazing locations that featured in Mandela’s
 life story and helped make his dream of freedom for his country 
come true.

Gary Kershaw, General Manager UK & Ireland for South African Airways, said: “Nelson Mandela
 helped South Africa achieve freedom and through this partnership we hope to
 build this legacy by supporting the great work of the Fund.”

SAA is also inviting participants to help raise money 
for the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund to help realise another of Mandela’s 
dreams: to make a world-class healthcare available to the children of
 Southern Africa with a state-of-the-art facility – the Nelson Mandela
 Children’s Hospital. Entrants can donate funds to help build the hospital
 via email, and social media, or by visiting the website 
www.walktofreedomquiz.com .

Jon Danks, SAA’s Head of Marketing UK & Ireland, said: “We are
 delighted to partner with the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (UK) to raise
 awareness and funds for such an incredible cause. By creating this
 educational quiz, we hope to increase knowledge on the charity while offering one lucky person the chance to go and experience Mandela’s South
 Africa for themselves.”

South African Airways currently offers direct double daily flights between 
London Heathrow and Johannesburg and serves over 30 destinations within
 Africa on a fleet of Airbus A330 and A340s.
