450kg of bottle tops equals 1 wheelchair
A year or so ago, Dylan Jacobs, a learner at Alberton High School and a member on the school's Welfare Committee, proudly handed over two new wheelchairs to Stepping Stone Hospice. On Monday, 27 February 2017, Dylan and his team handed over another new wheelchair to the hospice - all possible because of his dedication and commitment to do good in the community. Dylan and the rest of the Welfare Committee members embarked on a drive to collect 450kg of plastic bottle tops.
The tops were then handed over to Interwaste who in turn bought the wheelchair. It was Dylan’s decision then to make Stepping Stone Hospice the beneficiary of the chair. Seen here at the hand-over of the chair: Back (f.l.t.r): Montanna Bridger, Leandri Strauss, Bandon Olivier, Daniel Petrovic and Cara Hislop. Front (f.l.t.r): Dylan Jacobs, Tersia Burger (CEO Stepping Stone Hospice) and teacher Kim Kroukamp.
