wrote in to inform us of a news article published in the Weekend Argus of the 7th
October. The article included a heartwarming story of a homeless man’s return to his family in Canada after 13 years apart thanks to the help of a carpenter’s shop in Cape Town which Geoff runs. Geoff writes: “The Carpenter’s Shop, apart from our residence housing 40, has an ablution block for the 70-80 homeless per day that line up there each working day to shower and perform their ablutions, and can also wash their clothes in the tubs provided.
The skills training in car wash by chemicals, is open to the public from R110.00 to a full valet of R300.00 at 14A Roeland Street. We have been operating for 36 years now, and are pleased to show anyone around. For further detail please enquire from myself
or the Director, Peter Solomon
