A large Christmas cracker, measuring 1.5 by 6 metres, has been positioned at the Wheel of Excellence at the V&A Waterfront to encourage visitors to bring along toys, which they can donate by placing them through a shoebox-sized slot in the cracker. All the toys collected will be donated to the Tehillah Community Centre in Elsies River.
The partnership, between Peninsula Beverage Company (Pty) Ltd (PenBev) and the V&A Waterfront, is to bring Christmas cheer to children in less fortunate areas and they are calling on the public to support this initiative.
"The giant, Coca Cola branded, cracker fittingly joins the Coca Cola Crate Man at the V&A Waterfront this year. We are privileged and honoured to support an initiative that will benefit the community in which we operate directly and gladly give the Cracker pride of place at the heart of the V&A Waterfront's most highly visible and visited area," says Chantelle Kidd, marketing executive at the V&A Waterfront.
