AFTER weeks of raising funds and collecting donations for the Isabel Beardmore Old Age Home, the youth group from the St Luke’s Parish in Woodlands were finally able to give back to the elderly as they spent their Sunday afternoon at the home.

The youth group, who have been raising funds to contribute towards the home since as early as last month, were at the elderly residents beck and call as they served tea and cake, presented dance items, and donated their organised gift boxes to the residents.

“The old folk were so happy to spend such precious time with young people that they even danced together with the youth,” said proud facilitator, Brenda Jordan.

Jordan said that the elderly residents were so pleased by the kind act of the youth group that they had invited them to come again, this time jokingly adding that the youth group should host a night disco.

“Old folk are valuable and priceless. They are always free to spend time with anyone who wants to say hello and have a cup of tea or even play a game or two with them,” said Jordan.

Jordan and the youth group thanked the sponsors who were involved in giving and sacrificing their time to ensure the day went smoothly.
