On 9 August South Africa will honour women on National Women’s Day, but Tiger Wheel & Tyre is once again celebrating women all month long, during what it calls “Women’s Month”. In honour of the occasion, the company will host free Tyre & Road Safety workshops for women at selected stores countrywide.
The workshops will take place on Saturday, 19 August from 14:00 to 16:00 at 27 stores, which will each accommodate 25 participants. Women who wish to join in should visit the website www.twt.to to find their nearest participating Tiger Wheel & Tyre and to sign up and secure their place, which also comes with a loaded goodie bag.
“The workshops will include presentations on key aspects of tyre and road safety, including how to change a wheel when you have a flat tyre, motor maintenance tips like checking oil and water levels, and similar topics,” explained Joe du Plooy, Group Marketing Executive. “The goal is to empower our valued women customers, so they can take decisive action in situations in which they might otherwise feel vulnerable.”
To add maximum value to workshop attendees, as well as to the spectacular goodie bags they’ll receive at the event, Tiger Wheel & Tyre has partnered with Beame, Car Service City, The Body Shop, Standard Bank’s Ucount Rewards, Discovery, Michelin, and Masterdrive. Michelin will also sponsor 20 off-road driving experiences in Hennops, Gauteng. Details on how to win one of these epic experiences will be included in the goodie bags.
“We had a huge response to and turnout at last year’s workshops, and feedback from participants was immensely positive. As a result we’ve extended the initiative to seven more stores this year. That said, I encourage all women who are interested in attending to go to www.twt.to and sign up right now, because seats will go quickly,” concluded du Plooy.
