Wool for Wonders 2012

 “Wool for Wonders” Campaign 2012

Following the success of the 2011 campaign, Wynberg Girls’ School Old Girls’ Union, in partnership with the Constantiaberg Bulletin, is launching the “Wool for Wonders” jersey & beanie knitting challenge. The aim of the challenge is to produce as many jerseys & beanies as possible for the babies at Nazareth House.  Winter is rapidly approaching and there are a large number of babies, particularly new-borns, who need protection against the weather.  A small jersey and/or beanie, an easy knitting project, will enable them to be dressed warmly during these cold months.

The campaign is being launched at the school on Thursday, May 17th and will run until the end of July this year.

We appeal to past pupils, staff, parents and learners as well as the community to participate in the challenge and follow the jersey pattern printed on this page. Jerseys can be delivered to Wynberg Girls’ High School reception.

If you cannot knit something yourself, you can still participate in this community project by donating balls of double knitting wool. We have many senior citizens who would love to assist but no longer can afford the wool required.

For further information contact Hilary Mills on 021 764 2200 or marketing@wynghs.co.za

We look forward to receiving all your contributions.
