WITH Winter Woolly Week in full swing, employees at General Motors South Africa and their kids joined hands with Mr South Africa, Armand Du Plessis, at Walmer Park Shopping Centre to collect money and unwanted winter woollies for Winter Woolly Week.

The aim of Winter Woolly Week, a Community Chest project, is to assist people in disadvantaged communities in the province who are adversely affected during the cold winter months.
