As we head into the end of 2019, we are reflecting on the year that has gone by and the numerous projects that SPAR Botswana has had the opportunity to be a part of. In this installment – Christmas Giving.
Christmas is a special time for everyone. SPAR knows that not everyone is privileged enough to wake up to a tree surrounded by gifts on Christmas morning so we at SPAR like to spread the Christmas spirit far and wide and make sure that everyone has a joyful Christmas season.
