We are sure we are justified to say that last week presented some of the lowest temperatures ever experienced in Kimberley. On Thursday we woke up to snowflakes falling on our land! What better week to spread some practical love and share some "Madiba" spirit and warmth?
The KHS Interact Club distributed blankets in a wonderful drive spearheaded by the Chairman, Saaligh Fredericks. He said the objective of this drive was to commemorate Mandela Day by "combating the extreme winter weather for those most vulnerable to it." The appeal for support for the Blanket Drive sent out received overwhelming responses from well-wishers.
A “snow-thawing” warm thank you to Woolworths, Gifft and Barkly Road Muslim Butchery for their amazing generosity in this project as well as everyone who made it possible to help over 500 people in need of warmth this season. The blankets were distributed in Ivory Park, Lerato Park and Homelite just to name a few.
Due to the continuous interest and support, the drive has been extended until the 1st of August 2021.
