Let’s Work needs your support
Every day the 15-man team from Let’s Work get down and do the work that the City doesn’t have money for anymore. Almost all of them were formerly living on the streets but through this project most have managed to rent rooms.
They patrol the open green spaces, especially by the spruit, and clear it of rubbish and remind those trying to erect shelters on the river banks that they can’t do so. The team’s coordinator, Felicity Gratz-Lawlor, admits that people do sleep there at night but ‘they don’t have homes there’.
When the Let’s Work team is not busy with the green spaces, they move to different suburbs in the ward—clearing gutters of weeds, grass, mud and rubbish so that stormwater flows freely into drains; cut the grass on major verges and clean major roads.
Emmarentia still tops the donations received which means that the team spends most of their time in our suburb.
Let’s Work relies on donations. Extra donations are needed now because more unemployed workers want to join the team, AND their 55-year old vehicle, Bertha, ‘is too old for us’ and needs to be retired and they really need a replacement bakkie. If you’d like to donate (especially a bakkie!) see below:
