The award, which is presented in partnership with Fairlady, Sarie and True Love magazines recognises women who improve the lives of disadvantaged and underprivileged children. The award started 18 years ago as an initiative by Clarins Paris and now takes place in more than 15 countries around the world.

Bristow will receive R250 000 to support her cause and uplift the lives of the children she works with. In the first year of winning, Bristow will receive R200 000 of the prize money, followed by R50 000 in the second year. In association with Avis, Bristow also receives a car.

The Sumbandila Scholarship Trust mentors and supports students selected from the top academic achievers in the Vhembe district of Limpopo. They are given financial, academic and emotional support which assists them in applying for bursaries and jobs when nearing the end of their school years.

Bristow, who was honoured for her outstanding work in giving a solid educational grounding to children from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, received her award at a cocktail event hosted at Summer House in Hyde Park by Christian Courtin-Clarins, president of the supervisory board of the Clarins Group.

Jenny Crwys Williams served as MC for the event while singer-songwriter LeAnne Dlamini provided the entertainment.

Communications executive of Clarins South Africa, Jody Bunkell said, “Women like Leigh Bristow are helping to secure a better future for South Africa through their dedication to improving the education of our youth. Our judges were impressed by Leigh’s energy, commitment, and her hands-on approach when helping the Sumbandila children enter the world as confident and empowered adults.”
