Support where it’s needed

The staff of the Johannesburg branch of Turners Shipping combined their celebration of Women’s Month and Casual Day. The idea of being a hero to someone every day was expressed with members of staff sporting imaginative super-hero costume, with each department choosing a theme.

There was also a serious side to the festivities. “All of the staff contributed to our Womens’ Day initiative and we were able to deliver hampers of much-needed toiletries and sanitary products to the young ladies at the Hlalisekani Creche,” said Ursula Myburgh.

“Up to 30% of girls still miss school days due to the lack of appropriate sanitary products. We hope that our contribution will reduce that number for girls in our community.”
