KwaZulu-Natal 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela members got together and decided to make a Special Secret Blanket - suggested by Colleen Biddlecombe.

“For months we have collected squares from a number of people depicting what KwaZulu-Natal Zulu Natal means to them,” says 67 Blankets Ambassador, Sue Eslick.

“We wanted to make an impact with our Blanket so we looked for a means of delivery and the choir, Ababafana Base Kingswood, kindly offered to assist us. We were absolutely delighted with their performance and could see the impact it made by the number of people taking videos as it went round the Exhibition Centre.

“A huge Thank You to all who have been part of this. We will continue to collect wool squares and blankets to distribute to the needy in the Province.
