The Travel Corporation feeds homeless on Nelson Mandela Day

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same” Nelson Mandela

Staff at The Travel Corporation pitched in to make over 350 sandwiches and hotdogs to feed the homeless and hungry.

In honour of Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday and to dedicate 67 minutes to community all staff pitched in to prepare nutritious sandwiches filled with a variety of toppings including cheese, peanut butter, ham and tomato. Staff members then took to the streets in and around Rosebank to hand out the sandwiches.

Theresa Szejwallo, managing director of The Travel Corporation: Ï am delighted that all staff could dedicated themselves to this very worthy cause and I urge everyone to roll up their sleeves and get involved”.
