Ribbons to help tsunami victims

AN initiative has been launched amongst the hospitality and food industries to raise funds for tsunami victims. Ribbons are sold for R10 each and are to be worn for 10 days from January 29.

The South African Chefs Association (SACA), who is spearheading the initiative, is urging members of the industry - hotels, lodges, restaurants, tourism companies and other related businesses - to purchase these ribbons for staff and customers as a show of support and solidarity.

?We would value the industry and the public?s support. This initiative is undertaken with the full knowledge that some other initiatives have taken place and therefore this project is undertaken with particular focus upon the hospitality industry,? said Bill Gallagher, honorary president of the SACA.
