Jacket donations pour in

Ask and you shall receive. This is exactly what members of the Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch (HBNHW) did when they asked for donations for more than a 100 jackets for the patrollers of Hangberg and Imizamo Yethu during the annual general meeting (AGM) last month. The response from the community was overwhelming and thanks to the generous support from local businesses in the valley, patrollers were kitted out with their jackets on Monday June 20 at the Hout Bay police station.
