Recently, Hirsch’s Milnerton celebrated World Sleep Day by inviting Milnerton High School to take part in a fun and community driven activation. Commented Hirsch PRO Taryn Taylor “Hirsch’s, together with Cloud Nine and Rest Assured have come up with an activation to see how many School learners can fit onto one queen size bed for at least 30 seconds. Cloud 9 and Rest Assured came on board with Hirsch’s to donate sponge mattresses for a pre-school of our choice. The school in the Hirsch branch catchment area that clocks up the most bodies on a bed are the winners and they get to nominate the pre-school to donate the sponge mattresses to. Milnerton High School managed to get 29 learners onto one Queen sized bed for more than 30 seconds.”
‘Our School appreciates Hirsch’s for letting us partake in such a wonderful cause. I hope our School wins so we can chose a deserving charity for the donated beds.’ said Business Studies Teacher, Peter Edwards.
Commenting on the Activation, Chief Operations Officer of Hirsch’s, Margaret Hirsch said “Sleep is such an important part of our lives, particularly for young children. What we have found, when we visit underprivileged pre schools in the areas in which we operate is that sometimes the children don’t have anywhere to sleep during their lunch break-time. Most stay on until the evening when their parents pick them up, and that midday sleep is vital for them.
