Sometimes dreams do come true – they have for Woolworths TASTE and Eat Out Culinary Bursary winner, Ayanda Matomela. Since finishing high school, the 21-year old – from New Brighton in Port Elizabeth – has been interning at Green Leaf Café as a chef. This year, he’ll start his professional culinary training at Silwood Cookery School in Cape Town. Watch him accepting his award at the 2016 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards.
Woolworths is helping many more young South Africans get the education they need in order to follow their dreams – by giving away R1 million in bursaries, for example. You could be one of 50 shoppers to win R20 000 towards education or school fees – all you need to do is swipe your linked Woolies or MySchool card when you pay and you’re in line to win. Each product gets you one entry – when you buy kidswear, schoolwear or school shoes, you get two entries. (Competition ends 31 January.)
