Weylandts and its customers give back to the Knysna community
Today, Friday 11 August, saw a Weylandts delivery truck arrive on Thesen Island in Knysna, but it wasn’t filled with stock for their store…It was filled with 100 beds and mattresses and all manner of home items for the victims of the Knysna fires. The trucking company who transports all Weylandts stock between locations, H&M movers, also got involved in this project and graciously transported everything to Knysna for free.
The handover was made to Rotary Knysna representative Mick Furman with the Executive Mayor, Eleanor Bouwer-Spies in attendance. Knysna Rotary will manage the goods that have been donated and ensure that the items find their new homes.
Weylandts would like to thank their customers for their generosity in donating additional furniture and household items that have accompanied the 100 beds and mattresses. From kettles to coffee tables and every home item in-between, their customers’ support has been overwhelming.
The home outfitters have had the store on Thesen Island since 2005 and felt especially close to the tragedy of the devastating fires that ravaged the region in June this year.
