A week left to buy apples in aid of cancer awareness

24 June 2016 | Gemeenskap
With a week to go to buy apples in the 2016 Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple Project, businesses and the bank’s clients have opened their hearts to the worthy cause.
Several reports have been published of companies buying apples in bulk and distributing it to their employees and the needy.
ErongoMed said that the company has been supporting the Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple project, which raises funds for the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN), for many years. “2016 was no different,” said the company’s media relations officer, Marelize Robberts.
A northern businessman donated boxes of apples he bought at Bank Windhoek Outapi, to expectant mothers at a local hospital.
“There’s just under a week to go in which apples can be bought or ordered. The last day is Friday, 1 July 2016. Bank Windhoek therefore encourages parents and community members to support schools in their respective communities. You can get your apple immediately when you buy it at your nearest Bank Windhoek branch or Food Lovers Market and Fruit & Veg City outlets countrywide,” said Sanet de Waal, Communication Practitioner at Bank.
Apples ordered through schools and Bank Windhoek support departments will only be distributed to buyers from 18 to 29 July 2016
Individual learners will also be rewarded for their effort, as those who buy the most apples at each of the participating schools, will receive stationary packs from Maerua SuperSpar.
“In addition to Bank Windhoek branches and departments selling apples, they will also take part in the Staff Entrepreneurial Challenge. Each branch and department received seed capital from the Bank and has until 30 August to generate a profit through their own Apple Project fundraising initiatives to be handed over to the Cancer Association of Namibia. Keep an eye out for these events at your Bank Windhoek branch and support the in this great cause. All moneys raised will also go to the 2016 Cancer Apple Project,” De Waal said.
The aim of the Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple Project is to raise funds for the Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN), and to create awareness about cancer and educate the Namibian public on how they can protect themselves from cancer and live healthy lives.
The partners of the 2016 Bank Windhoek Cancer Apple Project are:
• Nampost Couriers, and FedEx, who will distribute the apples, throughout Namibia at no cost.
• Fruit and Veg City, who source the apples from South Africa and provide apples at cost price. They also coordinate the distribution of the apples.
• RadioWave, our media partner who broadcast radio adverts free of charge.
• Maerua SuperSpar who awards stationary packs to learners who sells the most apples at every participating school.
• Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) who audit the results of the school competitions free of charge; and
• JayLo Productions who provides the sound equipment for events during the Project.
