Winter Warmers for Hospice
Just in time for the chilly weather, these lovely ladies from the community put their knitting, crocheting and sewing skills to work, to make blankets, scarves, beanies and the like for the patients of Stepping Stone Hospice. They presented their beautiful creations to Stepping Stone CEO, Tersia Burger, over tea and scones at the lovely ‘The Steaming Mug’ coffee shop at Alberton Crossing on Tuesday, 9 May.
Said Lynette Lourens, on behalf of the group: “We have all walked a path with cancer at some time or another and would like to walk a path with hospice now, too – to use our skills and talents to help hospice with whatever they may need for their patients. We’re passionate about helping people and giving back.”
“Lynette is no stranger to hospice and has supported our organization for some time,” said Tersia Burger. “We are grateful for the contribution that these ladies have made, from the heart, to help keep our patients warm and comfortable.”
