Rand Aid’s Ron Smith Care centre celebrated Heritage Day on September 23 with a display of the nation’s many traditional dances.
Instead of one get-together, celebrations took place on all the wings to prevent overcrowding. Staff and residents were treated to fresh strawberries and ice cream and a special goodie pack filled with mango juice, smoked beef or cheese and onion crisps, jelly babies, chocolate, hand lotion and shower gel.
The rest of the day saw traditional dancing from the Venda, Tsonga, Zulu, Xhosa and Pedi tribes, much to the delight of the residents. As always, it was a glorious sight to see staff representing the diversity of South Africa, coming together in a beautiful melange of music, dance and colourful costumes.
