Each Year the Lions Club De Grendel supports Mandela Day by celebrating 67 minutes of service by donating blankets or preparing food for the needy. This year the club made a few “potjiekos”, curry & rice meals and pots of soup which fed approximately 200 beneficiaries.

Those who attended the Goodwood Day Hospital, some Welgelegen Old Age Home Residence a few Kent DurrResidants  The Parow Greens, Ruyterwacht, and Delft Senior Residents were fed on Mandela Day.

The Club would like to thank all businesses who donated food that was used for this project.
