Popular Sports betting company Betway gave a helping hand to the Soweto Home for the old age.
Marketing Manager David Rachidi of Betway along with his team paid a visit to the elderly home this week to donate food parcels and exercising equipment ahead of the festive season.
“We were out in Soweto to partner with the Soweto old age home and celebrate the festivities of the month that we are in,” Rachidi explained.
“As part of those celebrations we felt the need as a brand to actually come here and donate numerous things…from equipment to food parcels for the elders,” he told FARPost.co.za.
The elderly were also surprised with a visit from former Bafana Bafana international Lucas Radebe as well as Orlando Pirates legend Steve Sekano who explained the importance of giving back to the community and acknowledging those who have brought us up.
