The request by the Uitenhage Lions Club to the local community and Businesses for donations of winter blankets and clothing can only be described as “a recipe for happiness”.

This is according to project convener, Lion Claude Smith who together with his good lady Melissa convened the project on behalf of the Lions.

“The donations received from both individuals and local businesses made it possible to keep many of the homeless and street children warm during the bitter cold of winter,” said Lion President André van Niekerk.

“We wish to convey a massive thank you for the community’s support as the donations received really bring warmth to those in need.”

The Ministry and the Uitenhage Lions Club handed the donations of winter blankets and jerseys out to the homeless and street children at John Street, Uitenhage
