Woermann, Brock & Co. recently celebrated its 126th anniversary with the Win&Give promotion. A total of N$1.1 million in cash and shopping vouchers was won by customers.
The Give part of the promotion was a WB We Care Trust initiative whereby the eight main prize winners in the competition got the opportunity to select an organisation to receive a N$20 000 voucher.
