Winter Blanket Drive
What did we do?
For our Mandela Day East London Ladies Circle 23 did a side-by- side project with Lions Beacon Bay.
ELLC23 assisted with knitted blankets made up of squares.
The Chintsa Ladies helped by knitting the squares and sewing them together to make blankets. We attend one of their meetings and told them more about Ladies Circle and some of the projects we do. They also gave us feedback on projects they do within the Chintsa community.
A total of 103 blankets was donated. LIONS Beacon Bay, in conjunction with East London Ladies Circle and Beaconhurst Primary School, handed out a total of 43 blankets to Khanya Youth and Community
The word KHANYA means – Light and Guidance. The name indicates a focal Point in the community…….a place in which to focus one’s energies, talents, a place to meet and to express one’s self, to gather one’s resources, to set forth and a place from which to guide others.
Thank you to all who contributed towards knitting these blankets! More handouts will follow shortly….
