Shoprite and Checkers stores across South Africa have again raised more than R1-million for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) through their in-store Cuppa’s in June 2017.
Customers were encouraged to attend a Cuppa at their nearest Shoprite or Checkers store and to donate as little as R5.
Cuppa for CANSA encourages companies, associations and individuals to host events to raise much-needed funds to assist those affected by cancer.
To date Shoprite and Checkers have raised over R7 million for CANSA through its annual in-store Cuppa events.
