Tafta’s Old School Movie Night is a traditional Family Drive-in Movie Night and market experience taking place at the Durban Country Club on Friday, 29 March 2019 from 6pm.

This is the first of what we hope will be regular family evenings. Durban residents and visitors will enjoy a secure, innovative entertainment option, watching the light-hearted musical Mamma Mia from the comfort of their own vehicles, with food and drinks on sale to keep the hunger pangs at bay and a kiddies play area under the stars.

“Through these events, Tafta hopes to bring awareness of our service offerings, create an intergenerational bonding space, and raise much needed funds to continue our services to Durban’s elderly, both in our homes and in the community, ” explained Gail Samuels, Tafta’s Senior Manager for Income Development, Public Relations and Marketing.

The ageing population is growing at a rapid rate and we need to come together as a community to start making societal changes that will see us caring for our elders now and into the future. Tafta’s focus is to create awareness of the roles younger generations play in creating a life worth living for our older counterparts.

“With 60 years’ service to our credit, Tafta is the only organisation of its kind in South Africa, providing in-home care services to over 2 000 elders in 13 Tafta homes, 72 of whom require costly 24 hour frail care. Additionally, we care for a further 162 elders in their own homes, assist 803 elders with social work services and provide 58 274 meals through our community outreach programme Meals on Wheels, and in our Wellness Centres,” Samuels said.

Drive in tickets are R200 per car, and R80 per person for picnic seating. Tickets are available from www.quicket.co.za.
