Franschhoek Wine Valley Launches Save The Franschhoek Restaurant Appeal Initiative in partnership with SnapScan

13 July 2021

Franschhoek Wine Valley has launched an exciting initiative to raise funds for our beloved restaurants, their teams and more importantly, their families. Save The Franschhoek Restaurant Appeal initiative in partnership with SnapScan, allows visitors to not only support local business, but also experience the magic and beauty of the valley and its charming village, and be inspired to share the message with the rest of the world. The restaurant recovery campaign, which will commence later this year, includes a rewards-based campaign whereby locals and visitors receive a voucher after using SnapScan to pay at participating restaurants. The vouchers are redeemable through SnapScan at any of the businesses in and around the Franschhoek region who are also taking part in the campaign. In doing so locals and visitors would be driving revenue back into the region’s economy to benefit local businesses and their employees.

Generous donations have already been received from Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons, La Motte Wine Estate, Anthonij Rupert Wyne, Rickety Bridge Winery, Boekenhoutskloof, Boschendal, Old Road Wine Co., Bellingham Wines and Franschhoek Cellar, with the total already sitting at just over R1,1 million. In addition, Haute Cabrière launched a campaign at the beginning of the recent lockdown, where the winery has pledged R100 to the cause on every order of two cases of wine or more, via their online wine shop, with free delivery within 48 hours once the ban has been lifted.

The initiative is now open to private donations - all contributions / donations will be kept strictly confidential. This initiative serves as a valuable reminder that there are few motivating factors quite as powerful as a community uniting behind a common cause. No matter how big or how small, any contribution is greatly appreciated as we stand together in helping those in need!
