Wynberg Rotary Club joined 4 other Rotary Clubs (Cape of Good Hope Rotary Club, Melkbos Rotary Club, Hout Bay Rotary Club, Claremont Rotary Club) in applying to the Wheelchair Foundation UK for a container of wheelchairs for distribution in the Western Cape. These arrived at the end of February 2015, each club receiving about 20 wheelchairs for distribution.
Wynberg Rotary Club distributed their wheelchairs to St Lukes Hospice in Kenilworth, Maitland Cottage Hospital in Newlands, The Douglas Murray Old Age Home in Retreat and to the Western Province Association for Persons with Disabilities. The wheelchairs are all of a really sturdy make and all the recipients were thrilled with their donations. They were beautifully branded for our District and Clubs.
A huge thank you to the Wheelchair Foundation UK and Peter Gray of the Cape of Good Hope Rotary Club for all the admin. It is hoped that we can continue this relationship and assist with further wheelchair projects.
