The LANCEWOOD Quality Time™ Pledge is aimed at encouraging South African families to spend more time together around mealtimes.
A recent research survey we conducted revealed that 40% of households spend their mealtimes watching television. The more ‘connected’ our lives, the less connected we seem to be to those we love. At LANCEWOOD® we know that a meal has the power to bring people together so we want to encourage you to pledge to at least one technology-free meal every week where the whole family can enjoy some good old-fashioned, distraction-free time together.
When you take the LANCEWOOD Quality Time™ Pledge you and your family stand a chance to win 1 of 5 prizes to the value of R180,000.PLEDGE NOW
