This week is set to be one of the coldest this winter season, and because of the biting cold, residents in Bedfordview have banded together with the Bedfordview Spar to hold a blanket drive for the less fortunate.
Ward 20 councillor Jill Humphreys has pleaded with members of the community to support the drive. “Once again our Community Spirited local SPAR have agreed to make available their premises as a collection point for this initiative. Distribution of donations will be done at the informal settlements in Germiston. Unspeakable conditions! Please assist however you can.” she said.
Bedfordview residents can drop their donations of at the Spar. Any and all warm clothing and blankets are welcome.
