CAPE TOWN - Charities and schools are set to benefit from Clicks 50th birthday celebrations this August, the retailer said in a statement.

"To celebrate its 50th birthday, Clicks will be giving back even more value to its customers and communities. Fifty lucky customers will each win a free basket of shopping, while store staff will support 50 charitable causes during the birthday month," the statement said.

"Sixteen schools will receive R1 million worth of reusable sanitary pads and 34 charitable projects will receive support through donations of toiletries, infrastructure and basic essentials."

Clicks opened its first store in Cape Town in 1968 and has since grown with more than 650 stores and over 500 in-store pharmacies across South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho.
