CLOSE to 50 years ago, she opened her own driving school; the first such school owned by a woman of colour in Port Elizabeth.

Today Cecile Kathan is back in the city after 41 years in Durban, to give back to the community she once served.

She will be doing this by hosting a High Tea on Saturday, February 6, at 2pm and donating the proceeds to the Malabar Home for the Aged.

“Forty senior citizens call it home of which 22 are frail residents. The cost per resident per month is R1596,’’ said Office Administrator Mario Lewis.

Kathan said she is supporting a number of charities of which the Home is one.

“They really need support, so the open day and the high tea are great opportunities for people to have a walk-through and see what is being done, as well as what the needs are.’’

Retired doctor Val Moodley and retired minister’s wife Anne Drake – both in their eighties – are the guest speakers at the event, which will take place at the Malabar Community Centre in Haworthia Drive.

The tickets cost R100 per person or R1000 for a table of ten. For tickets contact Cecile on 082 781 6699 or the Malabar Home for the Aged on 041 457 5805 or malabarhome4aged@telkomsa.net or Nasreen Moosa on 083 400 4447. All proceeds will go towards the building of the first cottage at the Home.

Cecile invites all past learners of her driving school to contact her. The high tea will also serve as a reunion.
