You are invited to join this incredible initiative, which has become a ”Knitting Revolution for Nelson Mandela”!! Stitch by stitch, Guvon Hotels & Spas has pledged to assist 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day and are challenging you to make a difference to the lives of those less fortunate, who may not have the comfort of a warm blanket this winter.
Guvon Hotels & Spas and its hotels will be knitting or crocheting 20 x 20cm squares which will be sewn into medium sized blankets (120 x 160 cm). Each colourful blanket will consist of 6 x 8 squares.
Are you up for the challenge? Last year Guvon Hotels donated over 70 knitted / crochet blankets to this great initiative. This year we are planning on donating even more! So get those knitting or crochet needles ready, grab some wool and start making a difference!
The deadline for submitting finished blankets or 20cm blocks to Guvon Head Office in Randpark Ridge is 30 June 2016.
Any enquiries may be directed to our HR Director Alta Thorpe on firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel 011 791 1870.

If you still are not convinced that knitting or crocheting is for you, do consider these bits of humour which clearly illustrates that there are massive benefits to keeping the hands busy and the mind still!
Happy knitting everyone!
