UNIVEG UK was proud to be a corporate sponsor of the 2013 Cape Argus Pick n’ Pay Cycle Event that took place in March this year in South Africa. In addition to the cycle event an evening gala and charity auction was also held. All proceeds of this event went to the Colors Foundation.
The Colors Foundation is a registered, not for profit organisation that was set up in 2008 in the Western Cape region of South Africa. It invests in the lives of rural farm and packhouse workers and their families through social development, education and health initiatives. Long- term programmes are undertaken with a range of age groups with core programmes focusing on Child, Youth and Family development.
The event was a great success raising around R85,000 for the Foundation. As part of the sponsorship package UNIVEG UK had the company logo added to a rider’s jersey. This jersey is now on display in the UNIVEG UK boardroom in Spalding.
