For the second year in a row, Eswatini heritage brand, S.U.B. implemented it’s “Keep Your Kingdom Clean” program which was aimed at motivating Eswatini primary school children to keep their schools clean to build pride in their environment and nation.

The campaign was a 5-week program that’s goal was to change behaviour through functional rewards that will uplift the community. Across the Eswatini community, 15 bicycles and 5 JoJo tanks were given out each week to the cleanest schools, with each pupil in the school receiving S.U.B. branded stationery, water bottles, t-shirts and backpacks.

S.U.B. will continue to invest in the upliftment of the Eswatini community that is at the heart of this heritage brand.

Blue Ribbon and Hot Cares add hope to children in need by pledging 16,210 loaves of bread to Hlalisekani Creche in Kyasands, Oratile School of Excellence in Diepsloot and the Randburg Methodist Church soup kitchen.

Blue Ribbon, in partnership with Hot Cares, will deliver bread weekly for the second year in a row, entrenching the relationship with the communities that need a helping hand at a particularly difficult time in their life.

And while it’s important to donate bread to support the nutrition of people facing tough times, the Premier team will also contribute much needed time to add a little extra relief to the teams that keep these great initiatives going.

As the school year ends, Lil-Lets recognises the 10,000 lives that the brand has impacted through their CSI empowerment program that transformed the facilities and sanitation of female bathrooms in 19 government schools across KZN and Gauteng over the last two years.

Lil-Lets ongoing initiatives aim to empower young girls, teachers as well as cleaners with body and menstruation knowledge and mentoring opportunities. The Lil-Lets CSI program aims to inspire a culture of inclusivity, self-acceptance and dignity to help steer young girls on a path that provides them with the best opportunity to grow into confident and empowered young women.

Lil-Lets has undergone 70 workshops at the various schools post the upgraded facilities to empower, educate and motivate girls and teachers. In addition to these workshops, Lil-Lets has rewarded cleaners with an incentive program, as well as an in-school brand ambassador program, where young girls can represent the Lil-Lets brand and provide a support system for their fellow school mates. Lil-Lets have also included Fun Hours to celebrate the joy of being a woman in today’s society.

At Premier, the yearly Sandwich Challenge is a time of generosity, camaraderie and sharing. On one memorable day, Premier employees came together to make over 80,000 sandwiches across 24 sites.

Lots of fun was had with each division designing a hat while dedicating their time to making peanut butter and jam or cheese spread fillings. Most importantly, it was for a good cause with sandwiches donated to multiple schools and charities across South Africa.

Thank you, Premier employees for your warmth, fun and kindness in donating your time!
