SUPPORTING the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) this June is a piece of cake as Shoprite and Checkers pledge to donate a portion of proceeds from ALL cakes sold in their stores to CANSA.

More than 100 000 South Africans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and the funds raised will be used to enhance the support programmes offered by CANSA’s Care Centres.

Shoprite and Checkers have a longstanding relationship with CANSA and, to date, their annual in-store fundraising efforts has raised more than R7 million for the association.

Customers are invited to support CANSA by buying a cake in any Shoprite or Checkers supermarket between June 1 and June 30, 2018.

For more information contact CANSA via e-mail at or call 0800 22 66 22. Visit
