UK based financial services company, Express Links Money Transfer is backing Zimfest Live as the headline partner this year and also launching a promotional competition with prizes for people to be announced at the cultural and arts festival on Saturday 3rd August at Colesdale Farm Enfield in the UK.
The partnership between the two has been welcomed by Express Links International CEO Peter Pembere (pictured below) as a culmination of respective efforts in promoting community initiatives and networking with the vast diaspora communities and others.
“It is our honour to be headline partner for such an influential and important community initiative such as Zimfest 2019 because it comes at a time when we are also showing our gratitude to the people as a company by launching the Sign Up, Transact and Win promotion,” he said.
“Zimfest is a big festival that brings people together and as Express Links Money transfer we also want to use this opportunity to invest substantially in the communities who have been so loyal and shown us tremendous support over the years through use of our money transfer services from the UK to many African countries.”
The festival sponsorship is complemented by the Sign Up, Transact and Win competition where Express Links are running a promotion with air tickets to Zimbabwe and USD300 spending money for the winners up for grabs. The competition will be running from the 1stto the 30thAugust 2019 and terms and conditions will apply and people can also sign up on either the mobile app or website www.expresslinkint.com
“The steps to follow to be part of the promotion are very simple. All one has to do is to simply download the Express Link app and transact a minimum of £30 and are automatically entered into the competition. In addition there will also be five (5) raffle draw prizes of £200 each for some lucky people who sign up on the 3rdof August at the festival and announcements for winners will be made throughout the show. To enter the draw for the 5 prizes of £200 each visit Express Links stand at ZIMFEST grounds. So let us all come prepared to celebrate and win.”
