Giving back to the elders

Host of Bush Radio’s breakfast programme “The Breakfast Rush”, Yuzriq Meyer represented Bush Radio at the annual Woodstock SAPS Christmas lunch for senior citizens at the Woodstock Town Hall. We asked him to share some of the experience on this blog…

On Thursday, 17th of November 2016 the Woodstock SAPS (South African Police Service) in collaboration with the City of Cape Town hosted the annual Christmas lunch for the elderly of Woodstock & its surrounding areas.

This event takes place every year, where the police from the Woodstock area get together to throw an event all aimed at giving back to the old folks and allowing them to come out for not only a really nice lunch but also for a host of performances by influential artists, musicians and rappers from around Cape Town.

This really great initiative was nothing short of a success as the elderly, danced, laughed and had the real time of their lives.

It was a huge honour being part of such an extraordinary event.

Even more so, seeing the faces of my grandmother, your grandmother and our grandfathers faces light up with life as the artists tirelessly entertained them with sheer passion.

May next year be as successful as this and may we all do our little to give back to our communities as best we can.

We are one
