“Winter Knights is a home-grown Round Table Southern Africa Project which was first adopted as an Association Project in 2010.
The initial concept was for Tablers to spend a few hours in Winter, wearing light clothing, to experience the plight suffered by so many less fortunate people. It was hoped that members of their communities would come forth with blankets and old clothing, which the Tablers could use to keep warm and then once the project was concluded, donate on to worthy causes.
The project has evolved over the years, with many Clubs showing great initiative and forward-thinking in their approach—everything from trolleys being filled at Shopping Malls, door-to-door collections, tinned food collections, corporate donations and even businesses sponsoring a street corner for the day.
Winter Knights is a registered trademark, and we as Round Tablers are proud to call it our own!”
