Wrapping up the Wool 4 Wonders campaign, the high school held a special assembly there was a symbolic handing over and receiving of the garments made.
These guests included the Principal of Wynberg Girls' Junior School, two of their student representatives, Chairperson of the Wynberg Alumnae, a trustee of Tinmugs Africa Trust, Bud Higgins, and beneficiaries of the work of Tinmugs Africa Trust.
The programme of events included an interview with Bud Higgins by Asanda Noludwe, a performance by a representative group of children associated with the organisation and a vote of thanks from our Head of Service, Nicola van Tellingen. It is through Tinmugs Africa Trust that the blankets and garments will be distributed.
Not surprisingly, the young guests were the stars of the show. To the absolute delight of the school, they had planned some entertainment for us in the form of a song and dance. At the end of this, the school had a gift for each of them which took the form of a backpack (sponsored by DMQ Trading) containing a ball, a blanket, beanie and jersey; a soft toy and a book - donated by Bargain Books.
