Winter Warmers

Dear Friends & Supporters of Goedgedacht Trust

According to old Willem, our trusted and extremely accurate source of weather information, we’re in for a very cold winter.  As a farm worker who is now 74 years old, Willem knows the signs.

Each year we write asking you, our faithful friends and supporters, to help us through winter with something really practical…blankets for very cold rural children.

The first rains came so early this year, at the start of March, we have all felt the warmth of summer fading and the cold fingers of autumn starting to push in from the north.
Blankets are always in short supply in poor rural families. Please will you help?

We would love to be able to give our 8 POP Youth Centre Managers a supply of blankets for the poorest of the children that come to their After School Programme. They are easy to identify, no shoes, thinly dressed, skinny and shivery…

Our goal is to raise the money to buy 200 blankets (at about R150 per blanket = R30,000).

Please will you help us again this year?

Many thanks
Peter Templeton
Social Worker & Director, Goedgedacht Trust
