All 300 of Ron Smith Care Centre’s residents and staff were treated to a lovely surprise when they were each presented with a Lindt chocolate bunny, compliments of friends of Rand Aid.
Rae Hurwitz was a long-time resident of Elphin Lodge and Ron Smith Care Centre, where she passed away last year. In memory of Rae, her family donated the chocolate treats, which brought happy smiles and joy to residents and staff alike.
“Chocolate is always a winner, especially during this extended lockdown when little treats go a long way to lift spirits and to acknowledge the courage, hard work and dedication of care centre staff,” says Debbie Christen, Rand Aid’s Recreational Programmes Manager.
Some of the housekeeping and kitchen staff delighted to receive their gift.
