Pick n Pay “MOGODISHANO” COMMUNITY INDABA COMING TO POLOKWANE

Attend the free Pick n Pay Stokvel Community Indaba

An afternoon filled with advice, knowledge, dance and recipes.

Local stokvel group members are invited to attend the free Pick n Pay Stokvel Community Indaba – an event inspired to engage and empower stokvel groups to take charge of their money and get more rewards for their members.

Taking place on Saturday 30 June 2018 at the Ngoako Sports Complex Hall in Seshego Township (Polokwane), attending stokvel groups will have the chance to interact with various partners through talks, dance and competitions, and in the process, equip themselves to make the best decisions for their stokvel savings.

Entrance to the Pick n Pay Stokvel Community Indaba is free and attendees are guaranteed a goodie bag and lunch. Stokvel groups are required to wear their uniforms.

Members can expect advice on how to save for year-end bulk buying season, group insurances and travel savings from various partners from the grocery, financial advisory and travel and leisure sector. Members will also be inspired with budget recipe ideas for creating meals for large groups and receive education on how to get more value for money using specific grocery brands. Furthermore, there will be a free tasting of recipes using local brands.

Papi Rapolai, General Manager: Wholesale and Stokvel at Pick n Pay, says: “We want to engage directly with stokvel community members. We want to understand their challenges and buying behaviours and help them manage better financially, providing them with helpful and practical information on how best to shop for great value for their money.”

This is planned as a comprehensive event extending beyond financial advice, so groups will also receive tips on how to exercise and keep healthy. Rapolai says they also want to deal with community social challenges, such as women and child abuse, depression and substance abuse. “We have invited people in relevant fields to speak to members about these issues as we know they affect members in their daily lives.”

Stokvel groups can stand the chance to win their share of the prizes up for grabs on the day, valued at R1 million. This includes a group trip to Mauritius and Hart Pots to the value of R20 000. There will also be lots of instant prizes throughout the day.

Rami Chuene, popular star of The Queen TV Series and MC for the Stokvel Community Indaba, says that this will be more than just an event and that it would further improve lives and empower the community. “It is important that the stokvel members are better equipped with financial know-how, so they save effectively and get to understand the power they hold and the benefits of knowing how to manage finances,” says Chuene.
