THE Robin Hood Foundation packed 500 overflowing gogo bags last Friday, thanks to community support and a team of volunteers.

The Robin Hood Foundation has until 24 August to collect vital items to ensure the gogo bags for the second Soulfood visit to Shongweni are just as overflowing.

Gogos and mkulus (grandfathers) travel and walk for kilometres and wait from early in the morning to get the bags, many frail, but desperate for the relief our gogo bags bring them.

Along with the tea and eats they will get at the Soulfood visit this month, each gogo will get a large tub of freshly made stew to take home and a gogo bag containing enough food to feed a family of four for a week.

The Robin Hood Foundation needs help to complete these bags before 24 August:

· 2 500 cans;

· 500 blankets;

· 500 beanies;

· 500 scarves; and

· pre-loved, good condition clothing for all ages and sizes.
