Nomhle Manyetza from Galeshewe is the proud winner who walked away with the crocheted blanket in the Christel Armstrong Knitting Guild raffle.

The raffle initiative was aimed at raising funds and saw R600 being collected out of the tickets sold thanks to volunteer Agnes Nkoane, who played a big role in helping to sell tickets.

The raffle ran until December last year and the winner was announced on Monday, 8 January.

According to the co-ordinator of the Christel Armstrong Knitting Guild, Dorothy-Anne Howitson, the blanket was crocheted by Brenda Orton.

The money raised from the raffle will be used to buy wool to make jerseys for the less fortunate.
