Fighting cancer with On Tap and CHOC

Fighting cancer with On Tap and CHOC

On Tap went big in 2018, choosing to take their traditional charity drives in a whole new direction.

As a national franchise company, On Tap explains that contributions towards charity are generally made at a store level in their respective areas. Believing that while these contributions have been invaluable in the past, On Tap streamlined things to ensure that all charity was brought together in one place in an attempt to make a significant impact.

“After much research into various charity organisations, CHOC Children’s Foundation was the one that stood out the most. As a non-profit health system, CHOC is a national charity organisation with 12 outlets across South Africa. Their main focus is to provide support and services to children suffering from cancer, as well as their families and communities, to help make the journey a little bit easier,” explains On Tap MD, Johan van Wyk.

During the annual On Tap Indaba, the attending On Tap franchisees got together to pack care packages for the children of CHOC and their moms. A total of 150 care packages consisting of toiletries, toys, and beanies, as well as a microwave, four oil heaters, dishwashing liquid, and washing powder, were donated.

The Salt Rock Hotel in KwaZulu-Natal also donated ingredients for 70ℓ of soup to assist CHOC, who provide three meals a day to these children and their moms. The soup was prepared and cooked by the On Tap franchisee owners themselves, showing their dedication and compassion towards this great cause.

A special event was organised to conduct the handover of the donated items, which was done in lieu of a glitzy company awards evening to honour CHOC.

Cancer awareness activist and local artist Jakkie Louw joined the On Tap team to provide entertainment for the evening, while well-known international author and public speaker Justin Cohen was the MC for the event. The beautiful décor was completed by South African artist Bets de Bruyn, who also offered a 20% donation towards CHOC for all art items sold that evening.

“We would also like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to these industry suppliers who freely contributed towards the care packages: Alcolin, Hansgrohe, and NSP, and Vortex Sanitaryware for their very generous cash donation made on the evening,” says Van Wyk.
