LIONS – CARING FOR OUR SENIORS

Table View Lions treated the seniors in our community from Vue du Cap & Norton Square, with a Bingo afternoon including a Boerewors lunch along with an insightful Reflexology session from Lion Sue Meredith (registered Reflexologist).

The bingo sessions facilitated by our Lions always creates a fully inclusive participation of all the folk from both these homes with lots of cheer and laughter.

Demonstrating the benefits of additional caring for feet and hands at their age, the seniors were very receptive with lots of questions and smiles.
