Schweppes Zimbabwe transforms life of lucky customer with OK Grand Challenge 2018 vehicle prize!
Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited is doing more than just offering the best refreshment to its customers, it’s also changing their lives.
At the recently ended 2018 edition of the OK Grand Challenge, one lucky customer walked away with a brand new Nissan NP 200. Nyasha Chiungwe, a Mazoe Orange Crush loyalist from Mbare, Harare won the Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited sponsored vehicle after participating in the competition by buying her favourite beverage in the OK Zimbabwe Stores.
“Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited has been a partner of the OK Grand Challenge promotion for several years and true to our relationship with the retailer we took the opportunity to reward one lucky customer with a brand new car,” said Tariro Nharo Key Account Manager. “For Schweppes Zimbabwe Limited, the 2018 edition of the Grand Challenge was special not only because it marked the 30th Anniversary of the competition, but also because it was another chance for us to bring joy to the lives of one of our valued customers,” she added.
Schweppes Zimbabwe participates in this promotion with the express objective to reward loyal consumers with competitive prices and massive rewards which enhance their lives. This is one of the many promotions that the company sponsors to offer sustainable value and to give back to the community in which it operates.
The motor vehicle was handed over by Tariro Nharo Key Account Manager to the excited Nyasha and her family. At the prize handover ceremony held at OK Mart store in Hillside Harare, Nyasha was flanked by her husband, mother and siblings. They could not hide their joy as they all took turns to sit in the driver’s seat and hoot in celebration.
