Rev Boet and Linda van Schalkwyk recently ventured inland away from the ports to the Highveld Community Church in Centurion, where volunteers had been knitting beanies for the Christmas packages for the Sailors.

Linda explains: “136 beanies knitted by a handful of ladies who were challenged to make at least 50 by the time we visited them (approx 2 months). Thank you to the members of the Highveld Community Church in Irene, South Africa.”

The youngsters were excited about the beanies the grannies had knitted and tried them on.
