Wecke & Voights runs ball bonanza

With Christmas season around the corner, Wecke & Voights (W&V) has initiated a ‘Ball Bonanza’, which will run until mid-December.
The bonanza, which started last week, calls on everyone to take a ball to the store to be donated to charity.
W&V store manager, Adriane Jandrell, says this ball bonanza is part of the store’s annual competition. However, Jandrell and company decided to change this year’s competition theme.
“We have decided to combine this year’s competition with a charity cause. The balls that are brought to the store will be donated to a children’s orphanage or a school, which is yet to be determined,” Jandrell says, adding, “By running this charity ball bonanza, we aim to inspire our customers to give back.”
Furthermore, customers stand a chance to win a prize or gain a discount on their purchases.
“Customers will draw balls by the pay counter, which will indicate whether or not they have won a prize (perfumes, suitcases, hats, etc) or got a discount, which will range between 25% and 50%.”
In its first week, the store received a good public response, with around 20 balls already dropped at the store and a couple of customers won 50% discounts on their purchases.
Wecke & Voights is one of the oldest and most prestigious businesses in Namibia since 1892.
