The mercury is dropping and for the destitute living under the stars or in self-made shelters, wintertime can be an enormous hardship and even life threatening.

Therefore the Rotary Club of Uitenhage South will be holding what they call “Winter Nights” where the public of Uitenhage are requested to donate blankets or good condition second-hand warm clothing, which will be distributed to the needy in the community.

On Friday, 29 May, Rotarians will gather at the open area next to Engen Penford Convenience Centre at the corner of Graaff Reinet Road and Penford Avenue. Blankets and clothing can be dropped off between 17:00 and 22:00. The Rotarians will have a stand at the above-mentioned open area and intend having a warm fire going.

The Club has expressed its appreciation towards Gerrit Meyer from the Engen Penford Convenience Centre for their collaboration in this cause and also to the generosity of the Uitenhage community.

)People who would like to make special arrangements for dropping off items may contact Leo Doria 083 504 5117, Shaun Gilbert 083 672 5241 or Aubrey Nell 082 499 6241
