Seniors on the move

Douglas Murray Home for the Aged celebrated Older Persons Week with their annual fashion pageant and big walk last week. The events were hosted on Saturday October 5 and Wednesday October 9, respectively, and aimed to bring awareness to the plight, needs and rights of older people as well as to give residents an opportunity to have some fun and get out of the Cafda home. Grade 7 pupils from St Mary’s Primary School in Retreat and Steenberg police assisted the elderly with the walk. CEO Fred Daniels commended the pupils for their help and encouraged the rest of the community to support the elderly.
