Alberton High donates fourth wheelchair to hospice

Stepping Stone Hospice’s Clinical Services Manager, Sister Sheryl Newman, was on hand on Thursday, 25 January, to accept a fourth wheelchair donation from the staff and pupils of Alberton High during their morning assembly.

Dylan Jacobs, a learner at Alberton High School and a member of the school's Welfare Committee, has been collecting bottle caps and bread tags since he was in Grade 8, in an effort to ‘earn’ wheelchairs from Interwaste as part of the organization’s recycling project, where they donate a wheelchair to the charity of your choice for the collection of plastic bottle caps and bread tags.

Now in Grade 11, Dylan and the rest of the welfare committee members are working towards earning their 10th wheelchair, after collecting a whopping 450kg of plastic bottle caps for the wheelchair (their 9th to date) which was given to hospice. “I’d like to hit the 15-wheelchair mark before I leave school,” says Dylan.

Special mention was made at the assembly of Jarred Binedell, a member of the welfare team who was responsible for 250kg of the 450kg collected.

“This school can be very proud of its dynamic, community-aware learners,” said Sr Sheryl at the handover. “I have been invited here a number of times and consider everyone at Alberton High to be true friends of Stepping Stone Hospice.”
