Countdown begins for fundraising fete

There are plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained.

Poinsettia Park Retirement Centre is alive and buzzing as residents prepare to welcome the Toti community to its annual fundraising fete this Saturday, 29 June at 619 Kingsway, Amanzimtoti from 8am to noon. “You will have the pleasure of meeting many of your favourite cartoon characters, in line with our theme this year, such as Betty Boob, who will take your cash in the tea garden, while Minnie Mouse serves you tea or coffee, as you admire the beautiful artwork created by our residents,” said Poinsettia Park manager of community services, Wendy Lloyd.

Be entertained by the park’s resident line dancers and exercise group, as the well-known Belinda Dolphin who will keep your feet tapping to her beautiful songs. Donald Duck and Goofy will make an appearance and if you are good, Donald will give you a sucker! There is plenty to keep the young ones entertained such as a jumping castle, pony rides, tombola stall, lucky dip, home-made toys and a wishing well.

Poinsettia Park residents, Val Garvie and Paul White ‘horse around’ while putting the finish touches to all the goodies.

For dad there is an amazing ‘man’s cave’ for him to browse through with many interesting bargains. Mom can shop ’til she drops with an array of beautiful bags, jewellery, jams and preserves, ornaments, glassware , household goods, books, puzzles, CDs and DVDs, knitted and sewn goods, and art and crafts.

To tempt the palate there will be delicious home-made cakes, boerewors and bacon rolls, vetkoek, home-made ginger beer, toasted sandwiches, curries, samoosas and cold drinks.
