Rondebosch is a relatively small Branch with a big heart. They saw the desperate need for winter warmers among children and senior citizens in their community and decided to get involved in their community. So they started a “Winter Woollies Project” in which 19 members took part.
Under the leadership of their Chairlady, Mrs. Rina Kotzé, they put their nimble fingers to task and started knitting and crocheting for babies, toddlers, and senior citizens.
These energetic ladies produced beautiful articles like beanies, blankets and bed socks.
With great joy they ended up with 400 beanies, 24 blankets for young and old and 12 pairs of bed socks.
On Thursday 9 June 2018 they handed their colourful and useful handiwork to those in dire need of something to defy the cold weather in pre-primary schools, retirement homes and the Red Cross Hospital in Rondebosch. The thankful recipients were overjoyed and looked forward to warm heads, hands and feet.
Mrs. Rina Kotzé said this is an ongoing project that will last through the cold winter months.
