Appeal for blankets, rugs
AS winter approaches and the cold nights set in, Manning-based organisation Southcare is asking people to think of those in the community who need help. Many rely on rugs and blankets to keep warm because they cannot afford a heater. Southcare Manning runs an annual winter blanket appeal and accepts donations of clean blankets and rugs. The blankets go to Southcare customers who are known to be struggling. More details at www.southcare.org.au.
