AN appeal has gone out to businesses, organisations and individuals to help spread warmth to the elderly of Jeffreys Bay this winter.

Ward councillor Timothy Meleni is collecting blankets for elderly residents of his ward, which includes Tokyo Sexwale.

“There are many elderly residents in Ward 14 who rely solely on a state pension. The pension is enough to cover day-to-day essentials but not warm blankets or even clothing,” he said.

“Many elderly also look after their grandchildren or other children whose parents are unable to care for them. This makes the need for warm blankets even greater.”

It is not the first time that Clr Meleni is conducting the blanket drive. In previous years the campaign coincided with Nelson Mandela Day, however, this year the councillor would like to start distributing the blankets even earlier to help his community ward off the cold.

Anyone who would like to contribute a blanket to this worthy cause can contact the councillor on 073 766 6255 or email tmeleni.kouga@gmail.com. Blankets can also be dropped off at the Tokyo Sexwale Advice Office on the corner of Seekoei Road and Solomon Mahlangu Road, near Makukhanye Primary.
