Many of us have fond memories of the lessons we learnt at the feet of our grandparents and community elders. This month the People’s Post staff are opening their hearts and honouring their elders.Along with many other South Africans giving their 67 minutes for Madiba this month, the team of People’s Post will be dedicating the month of July to the legacy of late president Nelson Mandela by showing appreciation for our elders.For our 67 minutes, and as part of our #WeKPost charity campaign, the team will be spending time with residents of the Beaconvale Frailcare Centre in Mitchell’s Plain at the end of July.The home gets by on very little financial support and often becomes the sole provider for seniors, with very few families visiting or offering support to the facility.The centre cares for almost 150 seniors, both in full-time care and after or day care, with the recent addition of a ward for patients who need specialist care or are terminally ill. For the handover, we will be collecting much-needed items. We invite you, our loyal readers, to become part of this initiative by donating towards this cause.The following items can be donated:. Non-perishable food (canned food, rice, etc.). Blankets. Heaters. Gardening equipment. Luxuries for the seniors, like chocolates, sweets and dried fruit. ToiletriesDonations can be dropped off at our office (on the 3rd floor, Bloemhof building, 112 Edward Street, Bellville) or at Vangate Mall’s centre management before close of business on Friday 28 July.
