THE Beekman Group recently surprised Anerley Haven Frail Care with a donation of two brand-new lounge suites and 15 tub chairs for their residents’ lounge, at a cost of R32 700.

The company also donated second-hand bedding, towels and linen from one of its resorts, which has undergone refurbishment.

Quinton Gouveia, the manager of Anerley Haven Frail Care, said: “We are especially pleased with the tub chairs as the very frail can sit in these to watch television instead of being confined to their wheelchairs for the whole day.”

Anerley Haven Frail Care provides a home for 75 residents. Thirty-five of them require constant frail care and assistance.

The Beekman Group’s holiday and leisure portfolio comprises over 50 resorts and management companies, including The Holiday Club, which gives member families the chance to enjoy holidays at a number of local and international locations.

The group has also contributed to an variety of social initiatives over the years, including the Themba Club, the Genesis Trust, Louisiana Primary School and other worthwhile causes along the South Coast. — WR.
