(A recent delivery of blankets to the St Clements Home Based Care Project in Claremont. Three year-old Sduduzo Mvelase, one of the orphans St Clements cares for, sits proudly among the blankets with Franki Hills from 67 Blankets and Acting Project Manager Zanele Vune. Behind them are Finance Manager Ntokozo Mbuthuma, machinists Nokuthula Makaula & Nunu Ndebele with caregiver Nomfundo Nkwenkwe)

Join the 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day project on November 21 from 09h30 to 13h30 at the Elna shop at Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga Rocks to crochet or knit a 20cm square or two, and contribute to communal KZN blankets for the needy.

Enjoy a morning of crafting and make new friends, while helping to keep those in need warm in the colder months. Bring your own yarn and needles or hook, or purchase supplies at the Elna shop.
