Minnie Dlamini Jones put to the test by driving instructors at EXPERIENCE Johannesburg and accepts a Jaguar F-PACE SUV handover at Joburg’s newest premium destination
Minnie, who is well known for her work in girls’ education, STEM development and children’s nutrition, was surprised with a new Jaguar F-PACE shortly after completing a series of driving courses at the new EXPERIENCE Johannesburg facility in Lonehill.
Minnie Dlamini Jones said: “I’ve been a Jaguar fan for ages and now I’m excited to be officially part of the family! I’m thrilled to be associated with a brand I admire, and I’m even more delighted that Jaguar is interested in collaborating with my social responsibility projects.”
In March Dlamini Jones and Jaguar worked together with a nursery school in Khayalethu near Knysna to make the lives of around 80 young learners a little brighter. The partnership saw the delivery of solar light jars, backpacks, activity books and Jaguar water bottles. The children were also treated to lunch and each student received a food pack loaded with nutritious cooking ingredients as part of the Minnie Dlamini Foundation’s partnership with Nutriwell.
Tina Pienaar-Smit, PR and Sponsorship Specialist, Jaguar South Africa, said:
“We are inspired by the work that Minnie does to support communities and Jaguar is proud to be part of it. The collaboration of Minnie, her Foundation and Jaguar is a perfect match. We’re looking forward to growing the relationship with such a renowned personality and uncovering exciting projects together.”
Last week Minnie was invited by Jaguar to its new EXPERIENCE Johannesburg facility to complete a series of advanced driving courses led by a team of skilled instructors in an F-PACE SUV. The celebrity was taught the importance of ABS braking and stability control systems on the EXPERIENCE skidpan with practical demonstrations on a wet surface. Shortly after completion of her courses Minnie was presented with a set of keys to brand-new Jaguar F-PACE R-Sport in Polaris White.
