Guvon Hotels & Spas is knitting up a storm. In the office, over lunch breaks, even in front of the TV at night #Guvonfever is reaching an all-time high. The reason for this collective knitting exercise is a challenge posed by Indaba Hotel on the Guvon Hotels Facebook page.

On 9 April, the management of Indaba Hotel posted a challenge to Guvon Hotels to knit 100 scarves before the end of May. “What a wonderful initiative for winter,” group marketing manager Christa Badenhorst laughed. “A cheeky challenge from Indaba Hotel, but one we are definitely taking up. It’s such a wonderful cause initiated by Med Lemon and Glaxo Kline Smith and we are only to happy to contribute. Avianto and Radisson Blue have been challenged on Facebook and we are waiting to see if they have the knitting know-how!”

Thanks to Reta Coetzee from Guvon Central Reservations for her knitting lesson to all staff this morning.
