The event, presented in association with Alzheimer’s Eastern Cape, will take place at the NG Church Complex on the corner of Olienhout Street and Torchwood Avenue in Wavecrest, Jeffreys Bay from 08:30 to 12:30.

Entry is free.

However, a donation of R30 will be welcome.

Those interested must RSVP by Thursday, November 1.
