To those who knit: when you watch TV during the long evenings, please remember the seafarers and help us collect fingerless mittens. They are not only popular but vital – working outdoors on ships can be icy cold – and we need enough to fill at least 1200 Christmas parcels!

To those who have knitted so many over the years, a heartfelt thank you – I can assure you they are most welcome.

If you need patterns, please contact Linda van Schalkwyk on Tel. 031 2660695.


  • It is mid year and it is never too early to prepare for the Share Your Christmas with a Seafarer From cash donations already received mugs have been bought, but more are needed, please. We will gladly purchase mugs on your behalf if you would like to make a donation and of course you can drop off mugs personally at No. 6 Westville Centre, 52 Norfolk Terrace, Westville.
