Four car clubs came together to treat 24 pensioners, the oldest a 94-year-old man, to a braai, gifts and a spa day.
It was a memorable Sunday for the ou mensies when the German Freaks, Cape Deutschland Crew, Loyal Germans and Dub Familiar clubs visited the old age home.
They brought their braai gear; gift packs containing toiletries, food and luxuries; as well as members of the Infinity Inc Day Spa along, to spoil the elderly and keep them company.
For six hours, the women had their tired feet massaged and their nails painted.
Brandon Coetzee, 21, of Grassy Park is one of the executive members of German Freaks and says their aim is to inspire children, and show them that there is much more to life than gangsterism, drugs and crime.
“Our club started out among friends and it grew into us doing charity events like car shows, escorting matrics and visiting fire scenes to assist people, and now old age homes,” he explains.
“The event was arranged by our club and the clubs all gave donations. It was truly special for us because you could see the appreciation on the faces of the people.”
Faaiq Hardien, of Cape Deutschland Crew, says they were happy to join after Brandon invited them along.
“Our aim is to show young people do care and there are still people out there with good hearts,” Faaiq says.
“We also played games with the pensioners. It was a memorable experience and it felt good putting a smile on their faces.”
Valencia Lottrint, the Manager at the Village Care Centre, says they were blown away by the generosity.
“These were young people and, to be honest, we weren’t expecting this. They spent the whole day with the people,” she says.
“It was something good because many of our people do not get to go to places where they are pampered. We have 24 people here and they were all left happy at the end of the day.”
