Port Elizabeth - Dancers from the McWilliams Academy of Dance in Port Elizabeth again recently supported the Winter Knights event for charity.

"Winter Knights is a National Round Table project that takes place during June / July every year," described Vanessa Forbes, PRO at the McWilliams Academy of Dance.

"It was started about 15 years ago and aims to provide a bit of warmth and joy to those around the country who are destitute and in need of a helping hand, especially during the cold winter months."

Forbes said that the young dancers from McWilliams Academy of Dance have supported this campaign for two years now and are passionate about making a difference in some small way.

"They collected blankets, clothes and non-perishables, which were handed over to the Chairman of Round Table Algoa 108 Mr. Simon Ward on the 6th of June."

Round Table Chairman, Simon Ward  said: “We are so humbled to see young people, who are essentially the future of our country, involved in community projects. We are particularly proud to be associated with the young ladies from M.A.D who are so keen to make a difference in the lives of others and we thank them for their continued support!”

"We are attempting to raise our children to be compassionate, to be mindful of those less fortunate and to be involved in as many community outreach projects as possible and we are very proud to be associated with this heart-warming initiative!” added Forbes.

The public can also get involved in this wonderful community service, by dropping off donations at Algoa Toyota at the corner of Willow and Circular Drive, Fairview.
