THE Grade 4 Highbury boys, along with their moms and grandmothers, have been hard at work for the past two terms crocheting squares, which have been joined to make blankets that will be donated to the Robin Hood Foundation.

Kim Jones, foundation co-ordinator, was ecstatic with the donation. “Thank you to the Highbury boys, their moms and grannies for all the love, time and hard work that has gone into these blankets, they are beautiful and will be a blessing to the gogos who receive them at our winter warmth campaign.”

She encouraged the community to get involved with the foundation and help make a difference to the lives of those in need.

“Our next project is a soup kitchen on July 20. Our plan is to set up a full ‘sit-down, served meal’ at the Embo hall for 200 gogos and mkhulus, serve them lunch, have some entertainment and send them home with a gogo bag filled with food, blankets and clothing as well as bread and a bucket of stew for their family.

“We chose that area because these are some of the oldest and frailest gogos and mkhulus we meet in our outreaches. Carol Shroeder from Twinkle Star Foundation feeds 100 every Thursday - this is a lifeline for them.

“We have partnered with Carol for many years in the Embo community and would love to bless these elderly folk, who have spent their lives in service, by serving them a delicious and nutritional hot meal to sit down and enjoy.”

To get involved and help Robin Hood Foundation make a difference, email Jones at info@robin hoodfoundation.co.za
