Albany Bakeries team up with DJ Zinhle to make a thousand sandwiches
Issued by Hello Square - Jul 14th, 13:47
In honour of Mandela Month, the Albany team, together with ambassador DJ Zinhle, have pledged to make one thousand sandwiches for the African Children’s Feeding Scheme. Sarmies for Smiles is the first event of its kind for Albany and was born out of the desire to get hands-on in making a difference.
While Albany is known for their donation of one million loaves to various causes, this event aims to bring the Albany community together for an interactive day of sandwich making and smiles. Since the square root of a million is a thousand, we’re squaring up 1000 sandwiches with the help of DJ Zinhle and our fans to the beautiful children of the African Children’s Feeding Scheme in Soweto.
The event will be hosted this month in the Maboneng precinct in Johannesburg, attended by the Albany Team, local celebrity DJ Zinhle and a variety of press and media, as well as representatives from the All Gold sponsors and consumers selected by DJ Zinhle and Albany. Attendees will get hands-on during a morning of preparing sandwiches. The Albany team and DJ Zinhle will then visit the African Children’s Feeding Scheme premises in Soweto, to hand deliver the sandwiches to the children. Team Albany are very excited to be celebrating Mandela Month with this special occasion and hope for it to become an annual affair.

You can't eat it, but airtime is one of a handful of family commodities no one can ignore – it's the staple that allows us to stay in touch, make plans, and, of course, change them. But how much can you buy? And how will you make it last?
