Specsavers Project

It is satisfying to be active again after the lockdown period and Rotary Specsavers project were privileged to assist a young learner with vision and sight difficulties. A young grade seven learner from Swellendam Primary School received a brand new pair of custom spectacles. Testing and fitting were done free of charge by Specsavers Swellendam and funded through Rotary Swellendam. The young learner was amazed with her spectacles and expressed appreciation to all involved.

Winter Warmers

Rotary's Railton Coffee Morning project. Knitting articles for the needy in the community, is one of the projects undertaken by the ladies of the Rotary Railton Coffee Morning Project. The knitted items are then distributed to the hospital, elderly and other care centers. Celie Cloete from Rotary Anns now heads up the leadership of this group which has expanded to include knitters from the community such as Edna Streicher and her Rotary Park Knitters and Evelyn Kriel. Beanies, scarves, baby blankets and bed socks are amongst other items, the kind of articles that are lovingly knitted. These items are to be handed over for distribution to Pastor Joseph, Sister Hettie from Community Welfare
