Round Table Winter Knights is one of Round Table Southern Africa as well as Round Table Gauteng Area’s annual community projects held on the 23rd of June 2012 this year.
Winter Knights is a hands on project where we as Round Table support the local community by collecting blankets, old clothes and tin food. The beneficiaries for Winter Knights this year were the following, Bienvenu Shelter, AFM Bethesda Church, Feed SA and Family Africa. The project this year was held at 4 different venues across Gauteng. At each venue you could find Tablers standing around fires in shorts and t shirts. The reason behind this is that we show people and experience ourselves, the cold dreary nights which a massive part of our community go through every night of winter.
A large part of the blankets and goods we collect comes from Corporate Sponsors. Once again we would like to thank our Corporate Sponsors as well as the individuals for the generous donations. You made a difference in someone’s life.
This year was one of the most successfully Winter Knights in Gauteng Area’s history. We collected in excess of 900 blankets as well as clothes, items and non-perishables bordering R100 000. A phenomenal effort by all involved.
