Wish for winter wellies

Community Chest is calling for donations to help raise funds to provide 2 000 pre-schoolers with rain coats and wellington boots to help prevent high rates of absenteeism from school during winter.

A children’s winter survival kit comprising a raincoat and wellington boots costs R350. For details, visit www.comchest.org.za People can also drop off wellies, raincoats and warm clothing at their offices at 82 Bree Street in Cape Town.
