Golden oldie treats

Magdalene Kahn, Carol Wood, Toyfa Kamaldien, Michael Wood, Elizabeth Engelbrecht and Annie Snell.

Tafelsig seniors were in for a treat when they were treated to a hearty lunch in a garage in Bakenskop Street on Thursday July 14.

They each received a plate of food prepared and served up by volunteers with the non-profit organisation Simpsons Reaching Out to the Needy.

Ilhaam Adams dances with David Thomas, 72, both from Tafelsig.

Golden oldies played in the background as the seniors enjoyed each other’s company, danced and took a well-deserved break from their responsibilities, which for many included taking care of their grandchildren.

The volunteers feed their neighbours breakfast and lunch during the week depending on the availability of donations of food and gas.

Simpsons Reaching Out to the Needy volunteers Janet Kannemeyer, Shakeenha Smith, Nazibooeniza Simpson, Lillian Samuels and Fatima Mohamed.
