Met die skielike koue die afgelope week sal inwoners van Oosterland Jeugsentrum op Despatch bly wees om te hoor minstens 34 truie is vir hulle op pad.

En dié hoop truie is almal deur één vrou gebrei.

Margaret Myburgh van Uitenhage het al 92 winters agter die rug, maar haar hande staan vir niks verkeerd nie.

“Ek het ongeveer 12 jaar gelede begin met liefdadigheidswerk, en het van daar af mense probeer help op elke manier wat ek kan,” het sy vertel langs die stapels netjies opgevoude truie.

Oor die afgelope drie jaar het Myburgh ongeveer 60 truie vir die jeugsentrum gebrei. Sy skat dat sy ongeveer 100 truie en komberse asook ander klere vir kinders op bestelling gebrei het.

Alhoewel sy by ’n venster moet sit om “reg te sien” terwyl sy brei, meen sy die klik van breinaalde hou haar aan die gang.

“Ek moet my kop en my hande besig hou. Ek kon nog nooit stil gesit het nie,” het Myburgh gesê.
