“When I got that famous call from Nelson Mandela twelve years ago, I didn’t have any real sense what an impact the health clubs would have on the South African people,” explained the Virgin Group founder.
“The call was a request for me to save hundreds of jobs, but it quickly became about more than just rescuing a company. The challenge was to make the clubs accessible to all South Africans, especially families, something that is very important to me.”
