The annual FABI Blanket Drive has exceeded the target for 2015 with 278 blankets collected. The blankets were collected in support of Tuks FM’s Woolly Winter campaign. It was handed over to Nadene Kotzé, Tuks FM Marketing and Events Co-Coordinator, by members of the FABI Social Committee chairman, Robert Backer, along with Dorah Mwangola and Miekie Haasbroek

Prof. Noelani van den Berg is the driving force behind this and numerous other FABI charity initiatives. “Our aim for this year was to collect some 200 blankets – one for every FABI member - but we were blessed by the generosity shown by a 26 year old Tuks graduate who read about this initiative on our website. He decided to, in lieu of his birthday present, donate 73 blankets to FABI’s charity event. This kind gesture enabled us to far exceed our target but sets the bar high for 2016!”
