Hirsch’s Carnival had the privilege to help Mall@Carnival try and set up the record to make 3500 sandwiches in 67 minutes. The Carnival team who lent a helping hand was Domain Potter, Faridah Hart, Shon Masemola, Julia Mnebele and Faridah’s mom Ranjini Coopsamy. The atmosphere was joyful as we waited for the countdown to begin. Each team were given a section of sandwiches. Team Carnival had to make the chicken and mayo. East Rand Stereo was broadcasting live and Brakpan Herald also came to do their bit.
As we all started the countdown there were cheers from the spectators. Once all the volunteers got into a rhythm with making the sandwiches, it was smooth sailing. The sandwiches was being backed and the organisers were collecting them as quickly as they were being made. Hirsch’s carnival made at least 200 sandwiches.
Shiley McPherson is the marketing co-ordinator for Mall@Carnival thanked each of the volunteers for giving up 67minutes of their time to help the less fortunate. Hirsch’s Carnival not only help someone less fortunate, but made friends with everyone who volunteered.
3616 Sandwiches were made in 67 minutes.
