DOMESTIC workers made their way to Hirsch’s Hillcrest branch on Wednesday13 January for the free monthly domestic training course.
The course demonstrated how to wash non-stick pots and pans without damaging them, how to defrost a freezer and how to clean various surfaces effectively. Training was also done on how to use laundry appliances and different cleaning techniques.

The lucky-draw winner was Princess Movuso who won a Hemp Hand protector, sponsored by the Body Shop.

Congratulations to Elsie Mkize for winning the Domestic Worker of the Month award for January. Mkize won a R500 Hirsch gift voucher. Mkize’s employer, Louise MacLeod said: “I wish you could have seen Elsie’s face when I told her about your course. She was absolutely delighted and over the moon. This is the first course she has ever attended. She has been in my employ for 22 years,” said MacLeod.

“She has been a mother to both my girls, caring for them as if they were her own. Although she has had a life filled with tremendous difficulties, she exhibits a wonderful faith and has such a positive attitude. She always has a smile to greet me - she is an example for us all and deserves every bit of happiness.”

The next domestic training workshop will be on 2 February at 9 am at Hirsch’s Hillcrest branch. To RSVP, contact Hirsch’s Hillcrest PRO, Taryn Taylor on 031 761 7500 or tarynt@hirschs.co.za - Supplied.
