THE Shoprite Group, in conjunction with Age-in-Action, is once again sponsoring the Pretty Things for Little Things campaign and entries for the annual event will close at the end of the month.
The campaign encourages the creative talents of, in particular­, senior citizens, with the resulting goods being given to children in disadvantaged communities­.

Run as a national competition with wonderful prizes, entrants are challenged to use talents to make items from any material, as long as they are practical, durable and safe.

There are four categories - soft toys, blankets, clothing or other, which includes articles made from materials such as wood, tin or wire.

Winners will be selected from each province and receive Shoprite vouchers.

The campaign is part of the #ActForChange initiative, which aims to give back to communities.
