Valentine’s High Tea for Malabar Home for Aged

2017-02-08 06:02

ONE of the founding members of the Malabar Home for the Aged will be flying in from Durban to host a mini Valentine’s High Tea at the Home on February 11.

Cecile Kathan (73) hopes to raise funds for a new building project at the Home.

“Although I left PE some 40 years ago, the Malabar Home for the Aged will always be close to my heart,” Kathan said.

“I will not only be using the High Tea to raise funds, but will also use the opportunity to get family and friends to pledge a minimum of R1000 each which they can pay over 10 months. The names of the donors will go up on a donors’ board in the new section of the home.”

According to the chairman of the Home, Mogan Segadavan, there is a huge demand for accommodation at the home.

“Currently we have 40 frail and aged residents with a waiting list of more than 60,” Segadavan said.

“We are restructuring our admin area and if everything goes according to plan we will be able to take in another 10 residents.”

The home opened 28 years ago and is run by a voluntary management committee and is registered as both a Public Benefits Organisation and Non Profit Organisation.

Tickets for the High Tea cost R50 and can be obtained from Cecile Kathan on 082 781 6699 or the Home on 041 457 5805.
