TWO months ago, the Better Together Network (BTN) launched a project to make “puff” quilts for cancer patients and the ill.

The project was initiated when Khanya Hospice CEO, Neil McDonald donated fabric to local volunteers and ambassadors for the Cancer Association of South Africa, Sharon-Ann and Errol­ Theron.

“The aim is to create an ongoing project, starting with a thousand puff quilts for pressure sores that will be distributed for free to patients and the elderly,” Sharon-Ann said.

She said the project needs the assistance of the public who are willing to sew and donate completed puff quilts.

Instructions on making the puff quilts are available on the Amanzimtoti NGO Facebook page or on request.

The project is also in need of a machine that can handle thicker material.

She thanked Turning Point Amanzimtoti and George Snodey for providing them with storage space for the project.

She also thanked the Quilters Guild for coming on board and thanks everyone that has already contributed.

Amanda’s Coffee shop and Patches, Seadoone Mall are drop-off points for fabric and the completed cushions.

For further information Sharon-Ann can be contacted on 083 312 5360 or Carolyn Beukes on 076 206 2470.
