News Cafe takes a new approach to menu launches by hosting a #NewsForChange event in collaboration with Swan Shine and hosted Ikageng Itireleng. Alongside Swan Shine and #NewsForChange, care packages were donated to 10 young ladies who are a part of Ikageng Itireleng and VESPA club members, who were also a part of the launch, made a financial contribution towards the Ikageng Itireleng foundation.
