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.
