Hollywoodbets Bluff chose to support Issy Geshen Lamont Home for the Aged as part of Hollywoodbets’ My Community Programme for 2018/2019. Read on to learn more about the team’s donation.
Issy Geshen Lamont Home for the Aged
The home was started in 1960 and they look after elderly residents of Lamontville who are unable to live alone or with family.
These elders struggle to provide for themselves because they are living on government pension but they have a safe haven in Issy Geshen.
The Bluff Team chose to support this organisation because their work speaks to Hollywoodbets’ Ubuntu value and 30% of the branch’s customers come from this township.
The Team is touched by the organisation and their needs, so they visited them to donate blankets, gardening tools, wool and knitting needles.
Derick Houston, Fundraising Manager, was grateful for the assistance.
“The blankets will help to keep our elderly people warm, while the gardening tools will be used in our vegetable garden which was created to help us cut down on catering costs. The residents will use the wool and needles to knit blankets for our Nelson Mandela 67 Blankets campaign,” he said.
