“The Support My Cause initiative is designed to support local charities, community organisations, or good causes that are meaningful to our people and support our communities in which we operate.”

The programme is a series of weekend workshops throughout the country where it gives young people an opportunity to connect with others, reflect on themselves and create awesome projects in the community.
