THE staff and principal of Seeff in Jeffreys Bay used their 67 Madiba minutes last week to visit the Amala old age home in Jeffreys Bay.
Making sure all 41 residents enjoyed a muffin and a bottle of juice, principal Gerrie Nieuwenhuis said: “Many older folk miss company more than anything else, they crave a bit of conversation and outside contact, and this is why we decided to visit here.”
Matron Elna Gerber agreed, adding that she is grateful for any help, and that the residents always enjoyed visitors, and that the snacks were very welcome.
Seeff has also this year, as in the past, set up a dropping zone for blankets, warm clothing and other goods for the less fortunate, at their office at 65 Da Gama Street.
“We are experiencing one of the coldest winters, and the predictions are of even more cold, before the weather becomes warmer,” said Nieuwenhuis.
For this reason, he and his staff decided to offer their office as a depot.
The goods that are collected will be distributed to the needy by social worker Elda van der Walt.
