Flights, accommodation and safari trip on offer for one lucky winner and a friend

A Scottish charity is offering a dream holiday to Malawi for two as the top prize in its latest competition.

The Scotland Malawi Partnership is offering on lucky winner and a friend the opportunity to fly to Africa to spend seven nights exploring the country known as the warm heart of Africa.

Both people will be treated to flights from London Heathrow with Kenya Airways and will get the chance to visit the Makokola Retreat on Lake Malawi, Satemwa Lodges tea estate, take a walk on the wild side with Central African Wilderness Safaris and stay in Sunbird Hotels.

To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is tweet a selfie with one of the Malawian products promoted by the partnership using #BuyMalawian2017.

There are 15 different products to choose from including coffee, tea, sugar, rice, nuts, craft products and Malawian Gin.

Many are available in shops and supermarkets across the country as well as online.

The Scotland Malawi Partnership launched the competition in a bid to promote the links between the two countries with the hope more people will consider buying from Malawi.

The charity launched the competition on 19 March, what would have been the 204th birthday of Dr David Livingstone.

Arguably Scotland’s greatest explorer, through his travels Dr Livingstone fought against the slave trade and looked to open new trade routes into Africa to support its economic development.

“Malawi is known for having some world-class products, and we’re delighted help build Scottish markets for these goods,” David Hope-Jones, principal officer of the Scotland Malawi Partnership said.

“By building markets for Malawian exports, we’re able to help support sustainable livelihoods as Malawi works its way out of poverty, and we can help Malawi reduce its dependence on harmful tobacco production.”

More than 1,000 selfies and votes have been cast and the #BuyMalawian2017 has had more than half a million twitter impressions, reaching 150,000 people.
