With the colder weather making us reach for our blankets and warm clothing, the Winter Knights of the Round Table are calling the public to join them in the fight against the cold and to help them spread warmth to those less fortunate.

“This is the 12th year that the Winter Knights campaign will run again. Winter Knights is a hands-on project where we as Round Table collect blankets, old clothes and tinned food from the community. These collections are re-distributed to various charities who are in need of the above,” said Jacques le Roux, Chairman of Round Table 14 Uitenhage.

The success of this campaign lies in the passion of the Winter Knights who serve their community by putting their hearts and souls into it. On the night the Round Tablers will be dressed in their T-shirts and shorts around a fire. “The reason behind this is that we show people and experience ourselves the cold dreary nights which a massive part of our community goes through every night of winter.

“We request the community to donate blankets, old clothes and tinned food to assist us in our project,” said Le Roux.

The Round Tablers have arranged with Pick n Pay Penford in Uitenhage and Superspar Despatch as collection points where the community can drop off donations of blankets, clothes and tinned food. Round Table will then collect the donations from these stores.

The community is also welcome either to drop-off the donations on the night of the project or can contact either Jacques le Roux on 083 458 7081 or Kevin Smith on 084 411 9465 to arrange with them to collect any donations.

Superspar Despatch has jumped in to help with the Winter Knights Project and they will be out in their parking area in front of the store this coming Friday, 26 June from 20:00 to collect clothing on behalf of Round Table.
