We are excited to announce that our Old School Drive-In Movie night, a safe and socially distanced event for the whole family, is back to kick off the Third term school holidays on Saturday, 24 October 2020 at a brand new location: The Harlequins Sports Bar on the Bluff, south of Durban.
The event, which has become a favourite amongst Tafta supporters, is now in its second year and is the perfect end to the organisation’s month of festivities to commemorate the Month of Older Persons.
“We launched the month with the United Nations’ International Day of Older Persons on 1 October 2020 this year and focused on commemorating our elders through active ageing and fun activities, but also through more serious discussions of issues relevant to them – such as mental wellbeing and its significance to the United Nations’ declaration of a Decade of Healthy Ageing,” explained Tafta CEO Femada Shamam.
Shamam added that owing to the Covid-19 pandemic this year, many older people were separated from family members and those who cared for them, including Tafta’s own Home Based Care team who serve the community in Wentworth and surrounds. “So we were very excited that our team were able to resume caring for this community’s elders as Lockdown eased. However, the pandemic has had an enormous impact on fundraising at Tafta, with us being unable to host events, and allow new admissions, so we are hoping that we see as many families come out to support this safe, and affordable event on 24 October. Please do bring along grandparents who live with you too!”
For a fun-filled family night under the stars, join Tafta to watch the Halloween-themed HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA. Entrance to the venue is as 6pm. Food and Drinks can be purchased directly from Harlequins, and Tafta will be selling popcorn – however you are welcome to bring your own food and snacks, if you prefer.
