Donate wool to help animals
The 'Hanri Diere Kombersie en Diere Kos Projek' in Albertinia is calling for donations of wool that they use to knit blankets for pets at animal welfare organisations.
They collect wool to knit, crochet and loom squares that are used to make blankets for animals. Eager crafters are also welcome to to knit 20cm x 20cm squares themselves. They can use their own patterns and wool of their choice.
Georgians who wish to donate wool or any old woollen items such as jerseys and scarves, can contact Coreen Bothma on 082 652 9562.
All wool is welcome, even short pieces, as these can be used to stitch the squares together. Donations of fleece fabric or old blankets are also welcome.
For more information on the project, send an e-mail to hanri.diere.projekte@ gmail.com or have a look at their Facebook page, 'Hanri Diere Kombersie en Diere Kos Projek'. The WhatsApp number is 073 543 8778.
The blankets knitted with the donated wool provide warmth to animals for the duration of their stay at animal welfare organisations.
