Altogether 18 senior citizens attended a combined birthday celebration on Sunday (01/12) at the Mankurwane Primary School.

The celebration was hosted by the Thebe ya Kgomotso Elderly and Disability Centre for its members whose birthdays are between July and December.

According to the chairperson, Kgosietsile Sekgoro, it was the second annual birthday party after they hosted another combined one for members whose birthdays are between January and June.

Since its establishment in 2001, the centre consists of 44 members.

The event received sponsorship of a chain store in Galeshewe who donated a large cake and a farmer Jane Phetlho who had since adopted the centre and donated a sheep for the celebration.

One of the members, Paul Senwedi, who will be celebrating his birthday this week, expressed his joy for sharing his birthday with peers who understand him.

Having joined the centre this year, he appreciated the
gesture of the centre for celebrating his birthday differently this time.

“I am so happy to have joined this group and cannot wait for our closing outing where we will go on a game drive at a nearby farm on 14 December,” he said.
