Good luck to the Virgin Unite Staff Connection Team
- Oct 08, 2012
Every year, Virgin Unite brings together a wonderful team of 10 Virgin staff from across the group for a week of hands-on volunteering with Pride ‘n Purpose, the charitable arm of Ulusaba in South Africa who are committed to helping the communities living adjacent to the Sabi Sand Reserve.
This year, the team have been fundraising up a storm to fundraise for the building of a brand new community centre. The centre will boast a food garden, a kitchen and dining hall, an internet café, a recreational hall and organic food garden. The team will also be spending a day in Johannesburg with the amazing Branson Centre entrepreneurs, and visiting the amazing Virgin Active in Soweto!
