THE Association of Senior Citizens of Tongaat (Ascot) elected a new executive committee to lead them forward at their recent annual general meeting in Tongaat. Ascot, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, is the mother body of 13 multiracial clubs of senior citizens throughout the Tongaat municipal area. With a membership of close to 800 people, it makes Ascot the largest senior citizen organisation in Tongaat. Affiliated to Age-in-Action, the South African Council for the Aged, Ascot strives to improve the lives of the seniors through weekly club days, activities, nutritional meals and sports. Ascot, as a non-profit organisation, networks with stakeholders in order to continue upholding the rights and dignity of the aged in the community through sponsorship and fund-raising drives. The club’s meetings are held twice a week in community halls, library activity rooms, crèches and hall basements. - Supplied.
