Bingo at TAFTA On Ridge

On Saturday 5 April, the North Durban Lions played bingo with many of the residents of the TAFTA On Ridge old age home. The residents had a really fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Several rounds of bingo were organised so that many residents could have a chance to win a prize. The club also supplied cake to go with each resident’s tea, ensuring that the frail-care residents got some cake as well. Some photos of the very enjoyable service project:

Popcorn Machine Hire

The club was asked to provide popcorn at a private super-hero themed party on Saturday 5 April. We received an extremely generous donation towards the club’s service to those in need. Many thanks to Di of Vuzu Entertainment for thinking of us and getting us involved.

Lions Ian Ross and Neil Aubert served the popcorn, which was a big hit. They’re wearing super-hero capes in the photo, although of course, all Lions are super-heroes!
