South Africa: Virgin Limited Edition Properties Throw Support at ‘Pack for a Purpose’ Project



Necker Island has joined its sister properties Kasbah Tamadot and Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in supporting ‘Pack for a Purpose’, a community based project which is supported by hotels & resorts in 56 countries around the world.

‘Pack for a Purpose’ provides travelers with up to date information regarding the supplies needed in the community of their travel destination. By creating just a bit of extra space in their suitcases and bringing supplies for schools or medical clinics in need, the initiative allows tourists to create a lasting and priceless impact on the lives of children and families living in the local area.

“As a company we are committed to finding new ways to support the communities living close to our properties,” said Jon Brown, Managing Director of Virgin Limited Edition.

With the help of ‘Pack for a Purpose, Necker Island is supporting The Robinson O’Neal Memorial Primary School. Kasbah Tamadot, the first hotel in Morocco to join the initiative, is supporting three local charitable projects. Ulusaba Private Game Reserve in South Africa has been supporting The Dumphries Community Teacher Resource Centre which includes a toy library and resources for teachers working with young children in the wider area and The Mawewe High School Centre, which provides support for students with their homework and research projects.
