Ward 23 Pensioners


Christmas time is a very special time of year for families, your faith and exchanging gifts with loved ones.

For some it’s not so sweet. We have plenty of our Senior Citizens who have no family, living on SASSA pension with very little to get them by, all alone with festive season.

This year we are wanting to give those a very special Christmas. Turn & Tender is discounting a 3 course lunch for us to celebrate Christmas for those Seniors.

What I need from you as residents, to please let us know of those pensioners in Glenvista, Glenanda, Mulbarton, Liefde, Mayfield Park, Rispark, Bassonia, Patlynn and Kibler Island who you know are battling (SASSA), lost their life partner and are lonely with no family. Email your nominee to sarah@ward23jhbsouth.co.za.  Cllr Sarah Wissler and Anthea Sam will go through the list. We are limited to 80 people only.

We would also like to give each person a small gift of basic household goods to help them along over the festive season.

So what can I do you ask? Well, we ask for everyone to chip in to sponsor a pensioner at R150 p/p (or more if you can spare it). They will get a 3 course meal with cold drink, tea/coffee. Not forgetting the hamper.

Date for the lunch will be the 17th December so all monies and names must be in before 10th December for vetting.

You can deposit the money into:
S Brown Attorneys  |  ABSA Bank  |  ACC: 9332526569  |  Branch : 632005  |  Ref : Pensioner gift

Companies who want to sponsor more than 1 person, contact Cllr Sarah directly for branding rights  |  083-256-3453.

Tickets are also on sale at Turn & Tender.
