Sonae Novobord joins Shavathon!
In an effort to create cancer awareness, the CANSA organisation host an annual event in South Africa called a Shavathon
This event challenges all South Africans and organisations to raise funds for cancer and in the same instance, create an awareness of cancer.
The official company event in SA was held on March 2nd, and the national public event was held throughout SA at all shopping malls the day after.
"As you know Sonae employees are always up for a challenge", said Judite Jenkins (Sonae Novobord National HR Manager), "So we challenged ourselves and put out a hit list of people that we wanted to challenge to either color or shave their hair.This got us going, we were now challenging each other to shave our hair off !
There were a couple of the younger generation that decided to take the bull by the horns and shave their hair off."
Sonae Novobord raised 3740.00 Rand towards this fantastic cause.
