THE Uzwelo Bags initiative recently presented The Bateleurs with a cheque for R69 606 76.
The Uzwelo Bags initiative, spearheaded by Expand a Sign, sees thousands of metres of its waste textile fabric donated to teams of people from underprivileged backgrounds who can sew, to make unique South African bags and earn a living that puts food on the table, funds education and provides dignity and upliftment. A portion of all proceeds from Uzwelo Bag sales are donated to The Bateleurs.

Founded in 1998, The Bateleurs is a South African non-profit company with over 200 volunteer pilots and aircraft. It provides its beneficiaries and the public with an aerial perspective of the environment and has co-ordinated several diverse missions throughout South Africa and Africa in support of environmental issues. “We are proud to support The Bateleurs and share their dedication and commitment to protecting our environment,” said Kirsty Fonzari, Expand a Sign marketing manager.
