Employees of Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa (CCBSA) in Kimberley and South African Breweries (SAB) joined hands in rolling up their sleeves by giving the Gopolanang home for the elderly a facelift with a fresh coat of paint for the interior walls and window sills on Tuesday, 25 July.

The team assembled tables and benches, including shelving for their kitchen and office. Vegetable gardens were also prepared and alloca-ted toward planting spinach, cabbage and other vegetables to provide sustenance in the daily meals prepared for the elderly. Also to give more colour and life, numerous trees were planted around the property.

The programme was part of the teams’ corporate social investment programme and an effort to remember the senior citizens who reside in our communities.

The home is located in Warrenton and provides a safe haven for the elderly, who are often subjected to abuse and neglect.

The objective was further to boost the elderly’s physical, spiritual, emotional and social well-being.

Steven Turner, CCBSA district manager for the inland region, highlighted the need to give back and support communities, as they are the ones who buy and support the company’s products.
