The month of love was celebrated at Rand Aid’s Ron Smith Care Centre (RSCC) with singer Roy Edwards and delicious Valentine’s treats.
RSCC’s residents and staff felt the love on 15 February when they celebrated Valentine’s Day all dressed up in red and white or pink.
The main dining hall welcomed them with a lovely archway of red, white and pink balloons, and the tables were decorated with iced, heart-shaped cookies sporting various Valentine’s messages. Balloons were also used to make the tables festive.
A delicious strawberry cheesecake, tea and coffee were enjoyed by all, while singer Roy Edwards got the party going with a whole programme of music from the 50s, 60s and 70s.
“Residents and staff enjoyed all the golden oldie tunes. While some were content to just sit and listen, others swayed, moved and kept time to the music. Many residents were having such a great time that they had to get up and dance,” says Debbie Christen, Rand Aid’s manager of recreational programmes.
“The event brought joy to our hearts; music to our souls; and warmth, fun and laughter to our day,” she adds.
