In the letter below, Graham Wooding, CEO of Sapphire Corporate Solutions, has outlined Sapphire’s procedure regarding placing orders and collecting orders in light of the Covid-19 pandemic:
“Dear Valued Customer,
In order to assist our country, our staff, and all our clients in the pandemic of Covid-19, I have taken the decision to only execute orders from customers via the website, telephone or email – unfortunately calling customers will be unable to wait for their orders.
I understand that this is maybe an inconvenience to some of our customers, but please understand that I have taken this measure purely for prevention and to protect my staff and you, our customer.
Please feel free to contact me at any stage should you wish.
Graham Wooding (CEO)”
This year Sapphire’s initiative for Nelson Mandela Day was to donate 6.7% of the total sales for the day to the Clothing Bank. We are very excited to say that we managed to make this donation thanks to you. The donation will go towards The Clothing Bank’s enterprise development programme.
This money will be used to train our Ambassadors in community coaching facilitated by Nicky Hanfield. The Clothing Bank’s vision is to inspire, skill and support unemployed mothers to become financially and socially independent by assisting them to become self employed business owners.
We offer the women who join our two year programme an holistic development programme which includes over 1000 hours of training and support with the goal that each women should earn at least R4000 per month from her business. We have five branches supporting up to 800 women who in the last year generated over R30 million in profits from their business.
This success would not be possible without the support from companies like yours. Thank you for helping us change lives.
