Stamford and Bourne companies combine to give t-shirts to young South Africans

Have your say

SOUTH African youngsters are enjoying new t-shirts thanks to the combined efforts of a printing firm and a food producer.

Mark Stanhope, who owns UK Printwear, in St Peter’s Street, Stamford, had a surplus of t-shirt samples which he wanted to give to a worthwhile cause.

He joined forces with Bourne Prepared Produce, which is part of Bakkavor. Bakkavor has a business called Spring Valley Foods, based near Johannesburg, South Africa, and was able to fly a large box of t-shirts out to the country for free.

The t-shirts have been given to a youth group and child protection organisation nearby.

The two companies are now in talks to continue their charitable work.
