THE icy winter weather has started, leaving many vulnerable people in need of warmth.

After an extremely successful Winter Woolly project last year, the team at Caltex Wavelands embarked on their second annual Winter Woolly campaign this week - collecting warm clothes, scarves, blankets, beanies and anything that can keep out the cold this winter. All the items donated will be distributed among those in need in the informal settlements in and around Jeffreys Bay.

According to owner Vincent Tee, winter is a challenging time for many residents in Jeffreys Bay. “We are confronted with rain and harsh windy conditions that at times result in fires, especially among the houses in informal settlements. Therefore, we encourage all residents to help spread love and warmth to those less fortunate.

“Last year, we here at Caltex Wavelands, collected more than 1 000 items from our concerned and caring clients. We, along with other local organisations, distribu-ted these items to the needy. We, as the community of Jeffreys Bay, once again thank you all for your support and we are once again appealing to you to assist us in this needy and generous cause.”

According to Vincent, they look forward to growing this project every year.

Visit the colourful Disaster Collection Point box at Caltex Wavelands in St Francis Street, Jeffreys Bay, armed with winter woollies and help spread some warmth this winter.
