Socks needed

Bergvliet Lions Club is calling on residents to join them in the drive to collect socks for the less fortunate before winter. About 15 000 pairs of socks have been collected so far. The collection will culminate in a “sockathon” on Human Rights Day, Monday March 21, when the socks will be laid out in a snaking line at Bergvliet High School and the length measured before being distributed to various charities. Pictured is Lion Angela Niehaus proudly displaying a “ball” of socks – each ball represents 100 socks. Socks can be dropped off at the deputy mayor’s office on 6th Floor, Podium Block or the security desk on the second floor at the Cape Town Civic Centre, or at the Alphen Centre, Constantia, or call Bergvliet Lions Club at 064 062 4287.
