Give a little love to those who need it most this Valentine’s month at Lifestyle SUPERSPAR.
While there is a lot of emphasis on Valentine’s Day being a single day event shared between you and your significant other, The SPAR Group of South Africa believes that Valentine’s Day can be about love in all its forms, not just for couples, and Lifestyle SUPERSPAR is getting behind their national campaign in a big way.
“Everyone celebrates Valentine’s differently, but they say; ‘when you love, you give’, says Brad Buchanan, Lifestyle SUPERSPAR Store Manager. That’s why for the month of February, Lifestyle SUPERSPAR is ‘sharing the Love’ with our How BIG is your Heart campaign whereby, as part of our ongoing commitment to support our Local Community, we have chosen to support Summerhill House and would like to encourage Ballito locals to participate.”.
For the duration of February, a branded trolley will be at the front of the Lifestyle SUPERSPAR store. Customers will be able to simply donate any product of their choice and place it in the trolley, and all donations collected will be delivered to the orphaned and at risk children of Summerhill House in Ballito.
“We are honoured to be part of this drive which will be of great assistance in not only providing much needed items for our babies who live in our homes with our house mothers, but also in providing what is needed for the programs we run to uplift our community, such as our Homework Assistance, Youth Group, Soccer, and Holiday feeding during the school holidays where we provide a safe and fun environment and feed up to180 hot meals a day,” says Tshidi Dludlu of Summerhill House.
Products on Summerhill House’s wish list include: disposable nappies (size 1, 3 and 6), infant formula (Nan 3 and InfaCare 1,2 and 3), any non-perishable foods, stationery, as well as netballs and soccer balls.
Customers are also encouraged to peel a heart shaped sticker from the box on the trolley, write their name on the sticker and stick it to the blank heart panel when they have donated a product. Says Brad, “We want to show the country just how big our Ballito customers’ hearts really are!” says Brad, “We want to show the country just how big our Ballito customers’ hearts really are!”
