Winter is approaching, meaning that cold nights for the less fortunate await.

To help their fellow Kemptonians, Cavendish Glen Shopping Centre in Glen Marais is hosting a blanket drive.

“We challenge all our local schools to participate. A floating trophy will be given to the school that donates the most blankets,” manager of Intercare at the centre, Ada Botes, told Express.

These blankets will be donated to MES on June 2 during a family day at the centre.

Locals can look forward to many other events on this day. Intercare will give free blood pressure and weight screenings, Lancet will look at your cholesterol, while Haasbroek Optometrists will give free eye screenings. For an audio screening you can visit Kind 2 Hearing and Clicks for makeup tips and more.

For little aspiring chefs, Maxi’s will host a live cooking competition. The age groups will be Grades Six and Seven, Grade 10 to 12 and one for senior citizens. Entertainment sponsored by the restaurant will include a Coca-Cola truck, dancers and a jumping castle. Vouchers will also be up for grabs.

But, before the fun can start, blankets need to be collected. Which school will win? Get going!
