Hospice and SPCA Cheque Handover

The Quilters-by-the-Sea quilters group recently donated two magnificent quilts to the club, to raffle off to raise funds for charity. The club raised over R8000 raffling these king-size and single-bed quilts. Along with the funds raised at the club’s craft shows, we were able to give R7500 to the Durban and Coast SPCA and the Highway Hospice. The cheques were handed over at a function held at our clubhouse on Friday 3 June. Heather Walker of the Hospice was on hand to receive their cheque, and Carolyn Smith from the SPCA also attended.

The winners of the quilts were unfortunately unable to attend to collect their quilts: Ernie Clarke of Morningside won the king-size quilt, and Jacqui Olivier of Pretoria won the single-bed size. Dixie Benn, the chairlady of the Quilters-by-the-Sea group and coincidentally Jacqui’s mother, collected the quilt for Jacqui.

A certificate of appreciation was presented to the Quilters-by-the-Sea, in recognition of their generous donation.

Our thanks also to Lauren Anthony of the North Glen News, who gave up some of her time to take some photos of the event.

A few photos from the evening are below:

February Craft Show

On 27 February 2010, the club hosted a craft show at its clubhouse. The show featured an exhibition of quilts from the Quilters-by-the-Sea group, while many other crafters also showed off their work. Many of the crafters also had some of their crafts available for sale. The quilters group also presented the club with a beautiful quilt which was raffled off to raise further funds. Some photos of the very successful event are below:
