All for a good cause

■ With the help of family, friends and many other contributors, PPG Movement, a non-profit organisation based in Mitchell’s Plain, collected 370 602 bottle tops for recycling and with the proceeds they could donate two wheelchairs – one to Red Cross Children’s Hospital and the other to St Joseph’s Home. PPG member Deidre Solomon and her son Ethan came up with the idea to collect the bottle tops and efforts started in all earnest in February. On Saturday November 5, the organisation donated the wheelchairs.
