THE 31 Club ladies hosted a Christmas party for the patients at the Hillcrest Government Hospital on Friday, November 30.

31 Club is a non-profit organisation whose aim is to raise money for charities around KwaZulu­-Natal­.

31 Club Charity Outreach spokesperson Anne Collinge said that the reason they planned to do a Christmas party for the patients was because they wanted to bring some joy to their lives.

“The patients are usually used to the same thing and we wanted them to feel the Christmas spirit,” she said. She further said they also wanted them to see new faces as they are used to seeing their caregivers and family members.

“This was done for them to feel special and know that the outside world also loves them dearly,” said Collinge.

The 31 Club didn’t only do a Christmas party for the patients, but they also brought gifts, some of which some were sponsored by Morris Garage (MG) Club KZN

MG Club KZN spokesperson Lawrence Sysum said that this is their second year running that they have donated to the Hillcrest Government Hospital.

“Every year as the MG Club we do something to help the underprivileged people and we were more than happy to donate to the hospital when we heard that the 31 Club was going to host a Christmas party for them,” he said.

The MG Club donated basic toiletries and the 31 Club donated a deep freeze and cooking pots.

The Hillcrest Government Hospital patients expressed their gratitude to the 31 Club ladies and MG Club KZN for everything that they’ve done for them. “We really appreciate the donation,” they said.
