BUY a raffle ticket or two, or three, and stand the chance to win a 21-piece quilt valued at over R7 000 - all for a good cause.

Kouga Hospice celebrates its 21st birthday in August and aims to raise R21 000 from raffles for a much-needed bed for use by patients. The quilt plus its 20 blocks make up 21 pieces in total, and was completed within four weeks of intensive labour by avid Jeffreys Bay quilter Zahlia Wilcox.

“I made it specifically for Kouga Hospice,” she says.

The multi-colours represent the patients for which they care. No matter their age, gender or colour, Hospice cares for all equally.

“This quilt is called Memories in honour of my late husband who passed away from cancer.”

Kouga Manager Sister Ingrid Williams acknowledged the wonderful support the locals had shown in the past and feels positive that they will meet their target.

“Hospital beds are always in demand and we would like to have another one to meet the need,” Williams says.

Raffles cost R10 each. Entries close at midnight on May 31. The winner will be announced on June 1.

Donations are also welcome.

For more information, contact Jennifer at 042 291 1159.
