You are never too old to make a difference
Irene Rayner (88) from Alberton (middle holding a blanket) decided that she wants to knit blankets to be distributed in the winter months. The Philia Women’s Group, of which she is an active member, jumped in and helped her rounding off the blocks she knitted by adding the borders and sewing it all together.
The result – a proud moment when all these blankets were handed over to Stepping Stone Hospice’s CEO, Tersia Burger (on the left). These blankets will now be used as Blessing Blankets to be handed out to hospice patients and their families. The Philia Group meets every Tuesday at the NG Church West in Fore Street, New Redruth where the ladies form a support group and learn various new skills. Feel free to contact their chairperson Ria le Roux on 083 263 3538 for further info on the group and its activities.
