67 Minutes – Mandela Day

Our aim at J Leslie Smith and Company Inc. is make a minimum of 67 premmie/baby hats or items per month, which will be shared amongst the government hospitals in PMB area:  Edendale, Greys and Northdale.

Why only on this one day should we do something for 67 minutes when in fact we could make this a monthly event.  The ladies, and gentlemen who wish to join in, get together on the last Friday of the month and during lunch hour sit in the boardroom and crochet  or knit, eat their lunch, hands busy with the crochet  hooks and knitting needles and chat along – the hour speeds by.  The hats and items are completed at home with everyone giving of their own time. 

The first delivery of baby blankets and other donated items was to Greys Hospital maternity section in August 2013.

The second delivery was handed to Edendale Hospital personnel in the boardroom on the 19 September where we had over 70 knitted and crochet hats, and other items included blankets and knitted toys, these were all gratefully accepted.  During the visit other areas of need were identified which we will endeavour to meet.
