Let’s refurnish the homes of the Knysna fire victims

Having a store on Thesen Island, Weylandts feel especially close to the tragedy of the recent fires in Knysna. Although the immediate crisis is now over, many of the victims do not have insurance and will need to replace all the possessions they have lost. Weylandts would like to help by manufacturing furniture to make these people feel at home again as quickly as possible.

To this end, Weylandts will be manufacturing 100 beds and mattresses that they will deliver once the houses have been rebuilt. Weylandts would like to supplement this effort with your generosity in donating any furniture or household appliances before 30 July. These could be couches, chairs, beds, stools, fridges, washing machines, tumble dryers, microwave ovens, or even toasters or kettles.

If you would like to donate, please drop the item off at any of the Weylandts stores. They will then transport it to their Distribution Centre in Epping, and deliver to Knysna Rotary to distribute amongst the community. If you are unable to transport large items to us, Weylandts will also gladly collect from your home.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
