Fancourt’s heart-warming annual corporate social investment project, ‘Knitting for Charity’ will be keeping senior citizens warm this winter at two Community Centres near George, the Pacaltsdorp Community Service Centre and the Masizakhe Community Service Centre in Thembalethu.
On Monday 20 July the Fancourt team paid a visit to the two community centres and spent a morning with the senior citizens, handing out the 52 beautifully wrapped blankets, just in time for another predicted cold front. This is the second year that Fancourt’s hotel guests and the community were invited to give their time to knit blanket squares during the winter months. Knitting kits were made available to guests and Fancourt members and staff did their bit too and contributed to the success of the blanket drive this year.
All in all, over 500 squares were knitted to make up the winter woollies. Fancourt CEO George Davidson thanked the teachers at George Pre-primary and Crèche in particular, who knitted over 300 squares between them towards the blanket drive. All wool and needles were donated by Needle Nook and The Wool Studio in George. The George High School also contributed to the squares, providing their own wool.
In addition to its own community projects such as this, Fancourt, who is celebrating its 21st birthday this year, works closely with George Child and Family Welfare, supporting the NPO’s efforts to uplift disadvantaged communities in the Southern Cape through various successful, long-term community outreach projects.
