Hyde Park High School staff members and friends have been knitting and crocheting up a storm over the past two months.

They have already completed more than 45 blankets with a target of 67 – culminating with Mandela Day on 18 July.

The blankets will be donated to the Alexandra Neo-Natal Clinic for new mothers in need. They will be packed into a hamper together with knitted jerseys, caps and booties to provide the babies and moms with a meaningful and useful gift.

This is an annual outreach initiative that the school participates in with the clinic.

The school is urging community members to donate wool so to that they may continue knitting throughout the year.
