CELEBRATING WORLD SLEEP DAY!

CELEBRATING WORLD SLEEP DAY!

World Sleep Day falls on Friday, March 17, and as usual, Hirsch’s have some fun, community driven, ideas up their sleeves to celebrate. Together with Cloud Nine and Rest Assured they have come up with an activation to see how many GRADE 4 learners can fit onto one queen size bed for at least 30 seconds. This will take place at Brakpan Primary school on the quad fields at 11:00am and the public are welcome to come along and watch the fun!  

Commenting on the Activation, Chief Operations Officer of Hirsch’s, Margaret Hirsch said “Sleep is such an important part of our lives, particularly for young children. What we have found, when we visit underprivileged pre schools in the areas in which we operate is that sometimes the children don’t have anywhere to sleep during their lunch break-time. Most stay on until the evening when their parents pick them up, and that midday sleep is vital for them. Cloud 9 and Rest Assured have come on board with us to donate sponge mattresses for a pre-school of our choice. The school in the Hirsch branch catchment area that clocks up the most bodies on a bed are the winners and they get to nominate the pre-school to donate the sponge mattresses to. The Branch PRO’s are running with the competition, so contact the PRO at your nearest branch to find out what time the competition will take place.”www.hirschs.co.za
