Dads celebrated in style at RSCC

A relaxed, pub-like atmosphere greeted Ron Smith Care Centre’s male residents in celebration of Father’s Day on 15 June.

The event, held at the care centre’s recreation centre, was thoroughly enjoyed by the residents who were served a beverage of their choice and bar snacks, such as biltong, chips, pretzels and snack mix on arrival.

Debbie Christen, Rand Aid’s manager of recreational programmes, says residents were asked prior to the event what they would like to drink. “Heineken and Hunter’s Gold were requested, so we arranged non-alcoholic versions for them, which they really enjoyed.”

Highlights of the celebration included a Father’s Day poem, read out to honour fathers and father figures; a fun quiz on famous fathers, which saw residents with the correct answers rewarded with chocolates; and a series of BBC Wildlife video clips.

“Another poem was read at the end of the event and everyone left feeling relaxed and appreciated. Our residents had such a good time that they requested another pub social soon,” says Debbie.
