The 20thof June saw the story of the “Travelling Blankets” come to a new and exciting start with the last 10 crocheted blankets being donated to the Valley of Hope Soup Kitchen in Bathurst. In February this year the mammoth task of creating the ‘Largest Crocheted Blanket in the World‘ was reached in Leeuwarden, Holland and 100 of those blankets were donated to NHL Stenden with the intent on sending them to Stenden South Africa to distribute in the townships.

Mzameli Dikeni, Community Development Manager at Stenden South Africa, dropped off the remaining blankets last Thursday to the elderly women of the Valley of Hope Soup Kitchen to keep them warm this winter.

Stenden South Africa would like to thank the organiser of this project for allowing us to be a part of this incredible initiative.
