67 Blankets for Talhado Montessori School

What joy! Thanks and gratitude were abundant at Talhado  Montessori School when all the children received a beautiful hand-knitted warm blanket courtesy of a small group of ladies in East London who call themselves the Nanny Knitters.

The project was the brain child of Jean Hempel whose daughter-in-law is Cathryn Hempel the school’s headmistress. The Knitters took up the project for their 67 minutes of community service for Mandela Day. The 67 minutes turned into 67 blankets for the children of the school.
