Ever wonder what happens with all that mail that arrives in South Africa?  It goes to the KAS Barn where many volunteers SORT everything out to eventually be distributed to local children.

   Please check in here on a regular basis to see photos from all the activity in the KAS Barn during 2019.

    These square came from a school girl from St. Teresa's Convent.


    It has become quite the thing form several schools to bring us their squares, (sometimes in very interesting shapes and sizes), for us to provide letters of thanks in support of their community service hours achievement for their schools.  

    Schools that we most frequently receive squares from are: St. Teresa's - Rosebank Cont, Reddam College Bedfrodview, Holy Rosary Convent Edenvale, St. Benedict's College in Bedfordview, St. Andrews Girls High in Bedfordview, Heronbridge School in North Riding and Beaulieu College in Kyalami.

  • The Barn was a beehive of activity on November 5.  A large parcel of blankets from Croatia came in, their 50th package and the team rolled blankets in preparation of future distributions.


    Chris Chiplen's wonderful traffic blanket.


    So fun to see a KAS cuddlebug ready for delivery.


    The shelves are filling up with rolled-up blankets.


    • I love seeing the toys on the outside of the rolled blankets. Lots of interesting photos, a new blanket cake, shelves filling up and gorgeous toys. I’m thrilled to see my blanket for Bev’s this month’s road safety theme, I’d made it early and sent it off, seeing it the barn has made my day!

  • Photos from around the KAS Barn on October 29.


  • This news and photo came to Ronda this month from Derek and Tricia Gribble in the UK.

    It has been very busy here at ‘St Pancras Knitters’ and we thought you might like to know what has been happening. I’m not sure you will remember when we sent the article that was in our local paper back in 2017 having sent our 100th blanket and were so thrilled and thankful for all the support we had received to enable us to do this.  Well, we have been overwhelmed at the support that has continued and indeed continues by all our knitters and those within the church family and local community who support us not only by knitting but by donating postage funds and wool. This has resulted in us recently sending you our 400th blanket! 

    I have attached the recent local newspaper article and photo that followed our 400 celebration when 24 of our knitters and supporters got together for a ‘come and share’ lunch and were amazed that the local paper took such an interest.  This has resulted in further interest and an amazing amount of wool being donated.  (The photo of the write up is small so I have also attached a copy of the script with the link)We are aware of course that 400 in the big picture is so little compared to what is needed so the work goes on!  Note the knitted bunting in the picture with a sparkling KAS on the middle ones in South African colours!

     We are always prayerful for all the children and very much too for you and your team for all you do.        We pray that the vision and support will continue to be strong for you, that the Lord will continue to provide all your needs, and for health and strength for you all as you continue serving in this way.

    God bless you all.  All our love as always

     Trish and ‘St Pancras Knitters’
