Pine Crest celebrates Madiba’s legacy with Highway Aged

Highway Aged senior citizens received sweet treats for Mandela Day.

IN the true spirit of Mandela Day, the management and staff of Pine Crest Centre hosted The Highway Aged to pay a special tribute to Nelson Mandela.

The Highway Aged senior citizens were treated to live entertainment, celebratory birthday cake, and sumptuous snacks at Pine Crest Centre on Mandela Day.

Pine Crest Centre manager, Zoe Kaseka said it is important to remember that Mandela Day is more than a commemoration of the life and legacy of Madiba.

“Each year, Mandela day serves as a time for us all to honour his life’s work and to engage in simple acts of kindness that can make the world a better place.

“This year at Pine Crest Centre, we thought what better way to honour and further the legacy of Nelson Mandela, than by adding some joy to the lives of the elderly who have so richly contributed to the heritage of our country and community?” said Kaseka.

Expressing gratitude on behalf of 50 guests, Rishi Singh, care representative of The Highway Aged, said they were extremely humbled and sincerely appreciate the kind gesture from Pine Crest Mall management.

“A simple change of scenery for our elderly can make a world of difference for their emotional upliftment, and for this, we are truly grateful. Everyone present today had a fantastic time,” said Singh.
