Children’s home gifted knitted goodies

The Estcourt Knitting Club members hold up some of the warm wear they knitted for the Ikhaya Lethu Children's Home

The group of women from the Estcourt Knitting Club make hundreds of knitted goods every year.

They use their hobby not only to spend time together weekly, but also to help those less fortunate. You can assist by donating any kind of wool, or money towards the buying of wool to help them continue their work.

On August 2 Noel Robson from Ikhaya Lethu Children’s Home in Colenso was invited to collect two boxes and two bags full of hand knitted blankets, hats, gloves, jerseys and scarves for the 105 children that reside at the home.

Alicia Dreyer helps Mr Robson carry the donated of knitted items.

Mr Robson was very thankful while receiving the handover. A message conveyed from his wife, Mrs Robson was:

“Thank you for thinking of us and blessing us for all these years. The children will be very happy for the items during winter.”

Straight after the handover, the knitting club members began their next winter project. The members would like to thank all who assist them with knitting and made mention of Randa, Yvonne and Denise who contributed towards the project.
