Elderly treated to Christmas feast, gifts

TRAIN: Celebrating an early Christmas on the dance floor.

SOUTH Hills’ elderly enjoyed an early Christmas party on Saturday, November 25.

They did not hold back as they showed off their dance moves in an event organised especially for them.

BEAUTY: Taking a slower approach to dancing.

The party was organised by Sylvia Govender, who started a community service for the elderly six years ago, assisting those in old age homes with free electricity units.

Mother Sylvia, as she is affectionately known, started the Golden Age Club in February 2014 on Valentine’s Day. She runs clubs at various old age homes.

MAGIC MOVES: The elderly take to the dance floor to show off their moves at the early Christmas party.

She helps provide the elderly with vegetables and bread to take away and ensures they are treated to a hot meal in the homes.

On the day each of the senior citizens was given breakfast, lunch and dessert, and a gift pack to take home.

DANCING: The elderly show off their dance moves.

Govender said the elderly are attended to by nurses to check their blood pressure and sugar levels once a month.

The Christmas surprise was made possible by a few donors within the community, including South African Chefs Association students and lecturer Yejna Maharaj. The budding chefs pulled out all the stops to ensure the elderly had a Christmas party to remember.

GET DOWN: Moves to remember as the DJ plays songs from yesteryear.

ORGANISER: Sylvia Govender, who started the community service for the elderly six years ago.

ALL SMILES: Each senior citizen was given breakfast, lunch and dessert, and a gift pack.

CHEF LOVE: Students from the South African Chefs Association bring their skills to the table.
