The IMPERIAL and Breakfast Xpress Car Seats for Kids campaign is now in its third consecutive year where car seats are collected in October, which is Transport Month. this year, 600 seats were collected, and 200 were then refurbished and distributed to families in need at Brightwater Commons in Johannesburg.

"This campaign enables us to do this, as well as provide families with an affordable solution to strap their kids in safely."
