Christmas cheer – thanks to you!

Once again, loyal friends and supporters ‘came to the party’ to make it possible for nearly 2 000 Durban pensioners to enjoy their annual TAFTA festive lunch. Thank you for supporting this initiative, which brings real joy and companionship to seniors who don’t get many opportunities for social outings.

From the end of November, right through to Christmas Day, 17 lunches took place at our various residences and service centres. From individual members of the public who sponsored one or more meals, to the staff at Cook ‘n Care who lovingly prepared and delivered the food, it was a true labour of love.

Your efforts combined to give our ‘oldies’ an afternoon to remember. With a choice of starters, followed by roast turkey and lamb with veggies, and finished off with Christmas pudding or trifle – it was a feast fit for a king. Best of all was the conversation, the music and laughter. And the table cards you included with your donations, which let these dear old people know you were thinking of them and concerned for their happiness, added the final touch. Thank you!
