DICE dolls will spread love this Christ­mas

Eyethu Baywatch - - NEWS • IZINDABA - Lau­rie Smith

AIN’T they sweet? Th­ese soft, hand-knit­ted dolls are the lat­est project that the DICE (Do I Care Enough?) char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tion is fa­cil­i­tat­ing as they con­tinue to spread love and joy among dis­ad­van­taged Zu­l­u­land’s com­mu­ni­ties each Christ­mas.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion is now call­ing on kind-hearted mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to knit the dolls (the pat­tern is man­age­able for both begin­ner and ex­pe­ri­enced knit­ters), be­fore al­low­ing DICE to hand them over for ‘adop­tion’ by lit­tle girls through­out the re­gion when it con­ducts its an­nual Christ­mas Cheer Project.

Don’t de­spair if needle­work is not your forté!

You can still sup­port the Christ­mas Cheer pro­gramme by con­tribut­ing to­wards DICE’s gro­cery ini­tia­tive. More than 1 000 buck­ets filled with gro­ceries will be dis­trib­uted in De­cem­ber. To ob­tain the sim­ple pat­tern for the dolls, or to sign up as a ‘bucket vol­un­teer’, please email mar­i­lyna.muller@gmail. com or call Mar­i­lyn on 083 2724166.
