Askari Game Lodge & Spa calls on you to donate wool!

I don’t get angry or sad at many things, but cruelty to those who can’t defend themselves, makes my blood boil. High up in this category are children and animals. And who bears the brunt of ice cold winters more than the vulnerable? Askari Game Lodge is appealing to all their guests – corporate, leisure and wedding guests, to donate any leftover or even new wool to them.


Accountant Natasha van Rensburg originated the idea at the lodge: “The 67 Blankets for Madiba day which was featured on Carte Blanche, seems like such a brilliant initiative that we decided to fully support this. We want to take it even further. Not only will all staff be knitting their blocks for the charity blankets on Madiba day, but we will continue knitting throughout the year and donate blankets to our surrounding orphanages, schools and charities.”

Askari Lodge previously donated over 60 scarves knitted by the staff for Soweto schools, as part of the GlaxoSmithKline, “Scarves for Schools” challenge. The Guvon Hotel group donated over 250 scarves in total to this good cause.

Author Martha Waterman shares her wisdom in the art of knitting: “Given good yarn, good workmanship, and good care, a knitted shawl can outlive its knitter, providing warmth and pleasure to several generations of family and friends.”

Just what the doctor ordered for those cold winter days and nights.
