Nominate an elder making a difference in community

2016-07-14 06:00

There is only one week left to nominate an elder person who – despite their age – is still going out of their way to make a difference in the lives of others for the People’s Post SpecSavers Community Champions Elders Awards.

The awards aim to honour elders who are, and continue to be, of service to their community.

Elder citizens, from anywhere in the Cape, who are making a difference in the lives of others can be nominated in two age categories – 70-80 and 80 plus.

Nominations for the awards close on Wednesday 20 July.

A panel of judges consisting of representatives from SpecSavers, SA Care Forum, People’s Post and its sister publications, TygerBurger and City Vision, will select three finalists in each category.

Finalists will be notified by 15 August and will thereafter be featured in People’s Post.

The winner in each category will be announced at a special High Tea held on 1 October on International Older Persons Day. The overall winner will win two nights stay at the Garden Route Game Lodge including breakfast, dinner and game drives (valued at R6000).

SpecSavers will sponsor their transport to the lodge.

Other prizes include Spec Savers vouchers to the value of R2000, Capitec gift hampers valued at R500 each, vouchers from Ocean Basket Claremont and many more wonderful prizes to show the appreciation and affirmation to our three finalists in each category as well as the people who nominated the winners.
