Hollywoodbets King William’s Town
Eastern Cape

The centre has been caring for elderly people within the area since 2004. Their aim is to provide a support structure to the elders in the community, and they assist those in their care practically by providing meals.

Vukani also encourages active aging by offering a sewing club and gardening project that people can get involved in.

Hollywoodbets King William’s Town first heard about the centre from customers at the branch and decided to support the organisation after visiting them and seeing their great need.

The KWT Team supported the Vukani Old Age Centre’s good work by donating some much-needed supplies including two gas stoves, baking trays, four pots, cutlery, crockery, food storage containers, a microwave, kettle, oven mitts, two urns, a hosepipe, an iron and ironing board, as well as office trays and scissors.

Centre Manager Yoliswa Somi is thankful for the assistance.

“The support we have received from Hollywoodbets is so great! We are incredibly grateful for all the items that were donated because it is going to help us achieve our goals and enable us to better render the services we offer,” she said.
