Community Participation: Pickfords Durban and PE show their spirit!
Staff at Pickfords branches are always involved in their neighbouring communities, either actively participating in functions or supporting worthy initiatives. In this newsletter, we highlight Pickfords Durban’s participation in the recent Midmar Mile race, and Pickfords PE’s support of a local school.
Pickfords’ Port Elizabeth branch went ‘back to school’ over the December holidays, donating food parcels and goody bags to the children of Dr Viljoen Primary School in Port Elizabeth. Pictured here, Branch Manager Anthony Du Plessis and Sales Executive Melissa Muller shared some happiness with the pupils.
Pickfords Durban now does air-freight, sea-freight, and … swimming!
KZN’s ‘Midmar Mile’ – held this year on February 7 – is claimed to be the longest open water race in the world, with 17 000 swimmers participating. In addition to having a branded presence at the race, some staff members from Pickfords Durban went so far as to compete! These brave individuals – supported by family – included outgoing Pickfords Durban Branch Manager Zirk Swanepoel; Sales Manager Penny Korte; driver Sunil Bothilall and incoming Branch Manager Martin de la Rey.
